History. ASEAN was established on 8 August 1967 in Bangkok by the five original member countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand. Brunei Darussalam joined on 8 January 1984, Vietnam on 28 July 1995, Laos and Myanmar on 23 July 1997 (oddone out?), and Cambodia on 30 April 1999.entrepreneurial revolution began at The Economist in 1968- inspired by the imminent success of the moon race- was there anything that optimal blending of human and computer webs could not do? whats strange is today we have no system design to put say 10000 bright young people on sustaining earth - the space race may have been taken over by big business but its goal was first achieved by organising open collaboration between 10000 people round one goal- much more important that ER is that it can be argued that the moon race inspired many peoples who hadn't even be linked in to electricity to develop the east - china came out from behind its great wall with help of inward investment from diaspora already 3rd richest; the poorest big 10 populated place bangladesh gained independence and empowered generation of girls to build community-rising economies and then there was ASEAN - a loving cooperation between 5 founding nations in every way that the EU has failed to begin to value

      After the many painful lessons we learnt from the warfare of the 20th century, the world started to realize the importance of a ..

p1 no other regional organization has done as much to improve conditions of broad swath of humanity 600mn  people seen remarkable progress in 50 year,s- peace prosperity to, troubled region, generated inter-civilisation harmony  ,most diverse corner of earth,, and ,brought hope to many ,people ,including china’s peaceful rise.. In world of negative voices,, asean positive narratives.. south east asia microcosm of our global condition ,-miracle delivered by asean

why is asean the most transparent host of china's belt and road literacy gift to the world- mapiing world trade routes so that communities with the elast are included is the most valuable real world initiative for youth as the sustainability generation but only when it is connected with digital world's back from the future; while we would recommend exploring china, you can start in singapore to see a superport at work and the richest per capita nation; singapore has achieved that for one small compat populace- the benchmark for all superports across asean; but how do you achieve that for the 10 biggest nations geographically- the answer is you have to free trade for landlocked peoples- see map for china's colaboration invitations to free peoples in nations neighbouring it geographically; china is quite happy to ask contients on the other side of the world to come and explore belt road literacies; they dont have to but just like balrige benchmarking of physical systems quality was inspired by seeing the east's system maps so is belt road mapping - but with the deadline twist that fail to do it now and there may never be a sustainability genration
