incorporating every Asian country and developing an Asian Community without
duplicating other institutions or creating a bloc against others.

Kazakhstan, Republic of Korea, Kuwait, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar,
Pakistan, Philippines, Oman, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia,

Example of the course Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD):
Previous to 2008, developing Asian countries were mostly insulated from the financial
confusion since the kind of refined financial instruments that
were affected by the global crisis were predominant primarily in the financial markets of
America and Europe. In fact, there
was optimism that national consumption of
the People's Republic of China) was enough strong for these and other developing economies to have
'de-united' from the fortunes of developed markets.
The strengths of Asian economies also lie
in its banking and financial systems which are now moderately robust
after years of restructuring.
Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) member countries agreed that they would focus their future policies on
facilitating International trade of agricultural export products
between member countries.
