The East Asian Economic Association

The East Asian Economic Association (EAEA) was established in 1987 as the first international academic organization to focus on the economics of East Asia, comprising Northeast and Southeast Asia. The Association has since expanded and encompasses south Asia as defined by the SAARC countries. Members from all around the world are most welcome to join.
