The Taiwan ASEAN Studies Center

Guiding principles

The last few years have seen rapid progress in regional economic integration centered round the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Taiwan has for many years enjoyed close collaboration with the ASEAN member states in the fields of trade, investment, industry, culture, education, etc. With the ASEAN region currently experiencing rapid economic development, Taiwan has an urgent need to develop strategies and models to participate more effectively in ASEAN-based regional economic integration. CIER's Taiwan ASEAN Studies Center (TASC) was established on October 1, 2009. Its main goal is to establish a platform for domestic and international exchanges and communication in regard to ASEAN-related research, so as to strengthen the interaction and collaboration between Taiwan and ASEAN.
