This paper empirically assesses the integration of ASEAN with the European Union (EU) from an ASEAN-European Union trade model, and investigates their untapped trade potential. For the observation period of 1996 to 2008, the ASEANEU trade gap between the potential trade and the actual trade appears quite substantial. This study opens up the scope for future study on the ASEAN-EU regional integration.
