THE year 2025 will be essential for Asean as Malaysia will act as the chair of the regional grouping.

It will mark the end of Asean Vision 2025 and its blueprints and the beginning of the new Asean Vision 2045 and its accompanying strategic plans. A high-level task force has been established to draft this new vision and plans, which will be adopted next year.
