Abstract: The economic integration of the ASEAN region has been a primary goal of the association ever since the formation of the ASEAN Free Trade Area in 1992. Since then, the general consensus has been that there is more still to be done. Most think that the diversity of economic systems in ASEAN complement each other and will boost economic connectivity within the region, while others suggest that increasing competition could hinder the integration process. This study utilises a panel dataset of foreign direct investments inflows to ASEAN countries from 1995-2015 and an instrumental variables method to analyse whether investments to ASEAN are complementary or competitive. This study finds that there are limited complementary investment effects between countries of different development stages and some competitive effects for countries at a similar developmental stage. However, such effects prove to be insignificant.
