Abstract

In September 1981 Canada and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) signed the first economic co-operation agreement between ASEAN and an individual country. The Agreement was indicative of the changing focus in Canadian international economic relations towards the Pacific area. It also underlines Canadian recognition of an important new regional organization whose member countries contain some of the world's fastest growing economies. This 1985 paper examines the Agreement against the international legal framework for economic relations between states, assess its overall effectiveness in that context and explore where new initiatives are still needed.

Keywords: Canada, ASEAN, Economic Cooperation
