The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)-U.S. Partnership for Good Governance, Equitable and Sustainable Development and Security is a five-year project (2013-2018) supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United States Department of State to strengthen institutions and develop regional policies to advance ASEAN’s vision for political-security and social-cultural integration.
The Asia-Pacific region has become a key driver of global politics and economics and is closely tied to America’s security and prosperity. Today, Asia represents more than half the world’s population, and is the most dynamic and fastest-growing region in the world with a middle class of about a billion people. Robust economic growth, rapid technological change and increasing interconnectivity make Asia a progressively important market for U.S. exports and a key U.S. foreign policy priority.
