    In order to have strong economic ties like the European Union (EU), ASEAN requires solidity among member states to overcome disparities and to build a single market and production base, according to a former member of the European Parliament.

    Dr Christoph Konrad, former Member of the European Parliament and designated Secretary-General to the SME Union of the European’s People Party, said that solidarity was the headline of the integration process in the EU.
