When was the Asean Secretariat established in Jakarta Indonesia?
The Asean Secretariat was established in Jakarta, Indonesia, on 8 August 1967. The Secretariat is the main organ of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean), and is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the organisation. The headquarters of the Secretariat is in Jakarta, and it has a staff of over 300 people from the 10 member states of Asean.
The establishment of the Asean Secretariat was agreed upon at the first Asean Ministerial Meeting in 1966. At the meeting, the ministers also agreed to establish a Council of Ministers, which would be the main decision-making body of Asean. The Secretariat was formally established on 8 August 1967, with Datuk Abdul Razak of Malaysia as the first Secretary-General.
The Secretariat has played a key role in the development of Asean, and has been responsible for the implementation of the Asean Declaration and the Asean Charter. It has also been instrumental in the development of Asean’s cooperation programmes in areas such as trade, investment, tourism, and culture.
When did Indonesia join ASEAN?
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) was formally established on 8 August 1967, with the signing of the ASEAN Declaration in Bangkok by the five original member countries, namely Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand.
However, Indonesia only joined ASEAN on 28 August 1977, following the admission of Brunei Darussalam as the sixth member on 8 January 1984. This was due to its former policy of confrontation with Malaysia, which was a founding member of ASEAN.
Since then, Indonesia has played an important role in ASEAN, serving as the bloc’s largest economy and most populous member. It has also been one of the driving forces behind ASEAN’s efforts to promote regional integration and cooperation.

Where was first ASEAN Summit held?
The first ASEAN Summit was held in Bangkok, Thailand on 8-9 August 1967. The Summit was convened to commemorate the 10th anniversary of ASEAN, which was established on 8 August 1967. ASEAN leaders discussed the progress of ASEAN, as well as challenges and future prospects for the organisation.
The first ASEAN Summit was a landmark event that paved the way for the development of ASEAN into a regional organisation. It was attended by the five original ASEAN member countries – Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam later became ASEAN members.
When was the Asean community established and where?
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) was established on August 8, 1967, in Bangkok, Thailand. The 10 member countries at the time were: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
ASEAN’s purpose was, and still is, to promote regional cooperation and stability, and to foster economic growth and development. The organization has since expanded to include more members (Myanmar joined in 1997, Cambodia and Laos in 1998, Vietnam in 2007, and Brunei in 2009), and has undertaken various initiatives to promote trade, investment, and economic integration.
Today, ASEAN is the world’s sixth largest economy and the third largest in Asia. The community has a population of over 620 million and a combined GDP of over $2.4 trillion.
Which country is not a member of ASEAN?
There are ten countries that are members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), but there is one country that is not a member. That country is Timor-Leste.
ASEAN was founded in 1967 as a forum for economic cooperation, and it has since expanded to include political and security cooperation. The ten member countries are Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Timor-Leste, also known as East Timor, is a former Portuguese colony that gained its independence in 2002. However, it has not been accepted as a member of ASEAN because it has not yet met the membership criteria, which include being a sovereign state and having a population of at least 10 million.
Timor-Leste is making strides towards meeting those criteria, and it has been involved in various ASEAN-led initiatives, such as the ASEAN Connectivity Master Plan. In 2016, the country applied for membership in ASEAN, and it is currently under review.
So far, there is no timeline for when Timor-Leste might become a full member of ASEAN, but it is clear that the country is interested in joining and is working to meet the criteria.
