ASEAN Foundation

Established by the ASEAN Leaders on 15 December 1997 during ASEAN’s 30th anniversary, the ASEAN Foundation aims to help bring about shared prosperity and a sustainable future for the peoples of ASEAN whose member countries are Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Viet Nam. The Memorandum of Understanding on its establishment was revised in July 2000 and ratified by all ten member countries in July 2007. The Foundation has two objectives:

  • Promote greater awareness of ASEAN, and greater interaction among the peoples of ASEAN as well as their wider participation in ASEAN’s activities inter alia through human resources development that will enable them to realize their full potential and capacity to contribute to progress of ASEAN Member States as productive and responsible members of society
  • Endeavour to contribute to the evolution of a development cooperation strategy that promotes mutual assistance, equitable economic development, and the alleviation of poverty.

On 20 November 2007, the ASEAN Leaders signed the ASEAN Charter at their 13th Summit held in Singapore. Article 15 of the ASEAN Charter mandates the ASEAN Foundation to:

  • Support the Secretary-General of ASEAN and collaborate with the relevant ASEAN bodies to support ASEAN community-building, and  promote greater awareness of the ASEAN identity,
  • people-to-people interaction, and close collaboration among the business sector, civil society, academia and other stakeholders in ASEAN.
