Issues and Prospects

image of Regional Integration in the Asia Pacific

This report, published by the OECD's International Futures Programme in co-operation with the Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre in Australia, aims to stimulate informed debate about the main integration issues facing the Asia-Pacific region in the decades ahead.  It examines such issues as how the region compares to other regions of the world in terms of economic and political integration; regional co-operation on trade, investment and environment; and security and transportation concerns.  The book concludes with Mike Moore's "Reflections on Asia Pacific Integration".

Regional integration has long been on the agenda within the Asia Pacific, but it has advanced at a slower pace than efforts in Europe and North America.
