Goods trade between the United States and the ten countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is surprisingly robust. According to official 2010 US trade statistics, ASEAN—if considered as one economic entity—is ranked as the United States' fourth-largest export market and fifth-largest supplier of imports. Moreover, ASEAN's aim to become a single economic community by 2015 could further boost US exports to the region. Falan Yinug, International Trade Analyst at the US International Trade Commission, takes a closer ook at US-ASEAN goods trade.
