The ASEAN-Korea Centre has published a book compiling a wide range of information and statistics on ASEAN member states and South Korea.

The “2010 ASEAN and Korea in Figures” statistical yearbook contains information on topics such as trade, investment, culture, tourism, and key social indicators of the Association of Southeast Asian member states and Korea shown through tables and diagrams.

“This statistical yearbook serves as a useful guide for understanding the vibrant and dynamic relations between ASEAN member states and Korea,” said ASEAN-Korea Centre Secretary General Cho Young-jai.

The 2nd edition, published in both Korean and English, is distributed to relevant organizations, universities and public libraries in Korea as well as overseas including Southeast Asian countries. The e-book can also be downloaded from the Centre’s website at
