A Greater ASEAN

KUALA LUMPUR (AP) - ASEAN should eventually expand to include all ten nations

in Southeast Asia, Finance Minister Anwar Ibrahim said on Oct. 4. "Four have

yet to join us and stand among us.We should redress this deficiency expeditiously,"

Anwar told a forum on "One Southeast Asia." The four non-members in the

region are Cambodia, Laos, Burma, and Vietnam.

Noting that the countries in ASEAN are growing twice as fast as the others, Anwar

said there should not be two Southeast Asias, one rich and one poor.
