ASEAN has gone through a life-span of progress in the last 43 years. From a very humble beginning of five members it has become a full-fledged organization representing all ten states of the region. Guided by The ASEAN Charter 2007, ASEAN has firmly established itself as the regional organization of Southeast Asia and has won the respect of the world community.The Association has also moved forward by leaps and bounds toward greater integration in the economic, political, social and cultural fields.Despite this very substantial progress, intra-ASEAN relations are from time to time bogged down by many formidable problems in its principles, some of which are related to security issues, environmental problems and territorial rights.This paper will discuss the development and transformation of ASEAN from old to new communitarian agenda, the problem with the concept of “ASEAN Way” and three critical issues which the ASEAN Community needs to tackle urgently.
