The Growing Together: ASEAN at 47 forum was held on 8 August 2014 at Perdana Room, Royal Lake Club

The Growing Together: ASEAN at 47 forum was organized to celebrate ASEAN’s successes and consider the impact of the organization in the region. Currently, ASEAN is an adaptive and responsive organization with loose structures. The organization’s behaviour is not dictated by its more powerful members, but rather is directed by a rotating ASEAN chairmanship. In recent years, ASEAN has also adopted a charter, a roadmap, and a Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity. August 8, 2014 therefore marked the 47th anniversary of the establishment of ASEAN and the forum provided opportunities for several member countries to reflect on the past and express their vision for the future of the organization.

The day’s forum was moderated by CPPS Chairman, Tan Sri Ramon Navaratnam who made the point that it is remarkable to see how far ASEAN has advanced. Tan Sri Navaratnam also mentioned that he hoped ASEAN would move ahead in more concrete ways. In his welcoming address, CEO of ASLI, Tan Sri Michael Yeoh acknowledge that 47 years is a long time for an organization to exist.
