Mosaic of indonesia's chairmanship in asean 2011
Indonesia's engagement with ASEAN is based on a mandate of Indonesia's 1945 Constitution. Constitutionally mandated to work for a world of greater peace and social justice. Certain that the mandate can be fulfilled most effectively as an active member of ASEAN.
During Indonesia's ASEAN Chairmanship in 2003, Indonesia envisioned the establishment of an ASEAN Community. And immediately launched concerted efforts towards the transformation of ASEAN : a historic and fundamental transformation from an association to a true community of nations.
Indonesia's active participation in the "ups" and "downs" of ASEAN are based on its own experiences in geo-politics and geo-economics. Indonesia has always intended to bring ASEAN a step ahead. In 1967, Indonesia is one of ASEAN's founding countries. In 1976, through the Bali Concord, Indonesia brought ASEAN to the phase of confidence building through the TAC and ZOPFAN. In 2003, through the Bali Concord II, Indonesia transformed ASEAN from an association to a true community of nations. "ASEAN has been Indonesianized."
