Reza Y. Siregar

Director, The South East Asian Central Banks Research and Training Centre

ASEAN is market driven community


One thing I would like to stress from the beginning is that it is not a policy driven community, it is not a politically driven community, it is a market driven community… You (the private sector) are the drivers of this. Not the ASEAN secretariat, not the government and definitely not the central banks.
