ECAFE and Economic Cooperation in Asia

A. Rashid Ibrahim


1. At the 16th session of the United Nations Economic
Commission for Asia and the Far East (ECAFE), held at Bangkok in
Marchl960, a resolution was passed unanimously (Annex I) urging greater
cooperation among countries of the ECAFE region in order to achieve
accelerated economic and social development. This might well be regarded
as a historic landmark: while regional cooperation had been taking place
already in some measure through the forums of ECAFE and other
international or regional bodies, never before was the desire for it
voiced in such unambiguous and concrete terms. It is, therefore,
appropriate and timely to study the past efforts and future
possibilities of such cooperation.
