Sub-Subject Description: The Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD):
The ACD (Asia Cooperation Dialogue) was created in 2002 in Thailand. The Asia Cooperation Dialogue is an Asian economic and political forum.
The objective of the Asia Cooperation Dialogue is to set up the “missing link” in Asia by
incorporating every Asian country, and develops an Asian Community without duplicating other institutions or creating a bloc against others.
The members of the Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) are Bahrain, Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam, Bhutan, Cambodia, the People's Republic of China, India, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Kuwait, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Pakistan, the Philippines, Oman, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Uzbekistan, and Vietnam.
- Previous to 2008, Asian developing 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 emerging economies (India and 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.
- Strengths of Asian economies also lie in its banking and financial systems, which are now moderately robust after years of restructuring.
- Asia Cooperation Dialogue member countries agreed that they would focus their future policies on
facilitating international trade of export agricultural products between member countries.
