East Asias fast-expanding role on the world stage has also been underscored by increasing regional economic cooperation, robust domestic consumption and coordinated government stimulus measures.In terms of regional economic integration, ASEAN is a significant market of 580 million consumers, which will benefit from the remarkable economic momentum and progress of China and India. The target for ASEANs economic integration is 2015.

In addition, East Asia of which ASEAN is an integral part has emerged as a new global economic powerhouse in the wake of the 2009 global economic crisis, which resulted in a sharp downturn in consumer demand in the West.In what appears to be a new growth model, East Asia has focused on domestic consumption and intra-regional trade as new solutions.
