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”.
