ASEAN - India Connectivity: The Comprehensive Asia Development Plan, Phase II

Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA) submitted the Comprehensive Asia Development Plan (CADP) to the 5th East Asia Summit in October 2010, as a grand spatial design for infrastructure development in East Asia. The conceptual framework of the CADP, which was elaborated based on new waves of international trade theory namely the fragmentation theory and new economic geography, demonstrated how the region can pursue deepening economic integration as well as narrowing development gaps. This claim was supported by simulation analyses on the impacts of logistic enhancement to the region using the Geographical Simulation Model (GSM). CADP also provided a long list of prospective infrastructure projects which would be important to realize the policy recommendation of the CADP.
