This article explains my opinions and some analysis that forming a community-based regional integration—instead of other kinds of regional integration mechanisms—is a rational, good, and committed choice and the best policy for ASEAN members to enhance its capacity and capability not only as a country but also as a society. I personally believe that those criteria are compatible Indonesia’s characteristics.
