Summary :

On Nov 1, 2011, eighteen organizations in Asia undertook the signing of the Kuala Lumpur - Memorandum of Agreement to institutionalize the Asian Solidarity Economy Coalition (ASEC).

According to Dr Ben Quinones, the ASEC Chair, “this is a commitment

pledge to work through partner organizations for concerted and collective

action towards advancing solidarity economy in Asia. We have agreed

to focus attention on strengthening national setups in Asia through our

regional partners and universities. We are asking all our partners in Asia

to give us major dates of their national workshops or forums so that

we can encourage solidarity leaders from within Asia to participate”.
