“The Asean secretariat, along with various other institutions, is working on a 'comprehensive Asian development plan' and this is work in progress, it is not yet finished. We are still seeking participation, contribution, advice from the private sector and all parties concerned,” Surin Pitsuwan, the secretary-general of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) said recently.

The East Asian countries, he said, should take a leading role in formulating a new regional road map by helping form the comprehensive development plan.

The plan, he says, is one that would encompass the 16 members of the East Asian economies – the 10-member Asean, China, Japan, South Korea, India, Australia and New Zealand.
