Opinions on Asian Integration 

The New Asia Forum seeks to debate and generate ideas on all aspects of Asian Economic Growth and Regional Integration. To facilitate this we have complied various opinion pieces published in the News Media over the past few months on these and allied issues. This section seeks to pool in all those various expert opinions so as to provide for a thinking and debating platform. The articles herein focus on various issues like assessment of Asian Economic Performance, Ideas on Creation of an Asian Economic Grouping, Assessment of Current Regional Initiatives etc. The underlying idea is to assess Asia's overall growth and to evaluate how this growth can be sustained and consolidated through the formation of a Pan Asian Organisation. 

The articles have been arranged chronologically.
