ASEAN-Korea Relations: Security, Trade and Community Building
Ho Khai Leong, editor
Date of publication: 2007
Number of pages: 164
"The content that stands out the most is the chapter written by Trinh, in which matters regarding the economic cooperation that the CLMV, the least developed among the developing countries of ASEAN, expect from the ASEAN+3 cooperation mechanism, are presented. No matter how much it is emphasized that free trade and an FTA will aid economic development, less developed countries are not as interested in them as they are in economic aid. As such, Korea should also expand its foreign aid (ODA) to make it suit the size of the economy (chapter 4 by Park). The book provides information that is useful to the understanding of the regional security cooperation and Korea's policies in relation to developing countries, which are currently being discussed in East Asia" (Pacific Affairs).
"The book analyses ASEAN-Korea relations from the viewpoint of security, trade, and the building-up of the community. The chapter that stands out is that by Trinh, in which matters are presented regarding the economic cooperation that the CLMV -- the least developed among the developing countries of ASEAN -- can expect from the ASEAN+3 cooperation mechanism. No matter how much it is emphasised that free trade and an FTA will aid economic development, less developed countries are not as interested in them as they are in economic aid" (Asian-Pacific Economic Literature).
