The members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) are committed toward regional economic integration through the realization of an ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) by 2015. To do so, the ASEAN leaders agreed and endorsed in 2010 the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity (MPAC) to promote infrastructure development and connectivity. With increasing intraregional trade and investment flows, the infrastructure stock in the region needs to keep pace. To better connect the regional market of 600 million people spread across ten different countries, an infrastructure development driven connectivity is key. In addition, regional and subregional sector analyses have confirmed the continued importance of economic corridor connectivity in the drive to realize the AEC.
