Background

About AIMD

The genesis of the AIMD was the Macroeconomic and Finance Surveillance (MFSO), which was set up by the ASEAN Finance Ministers in 2010. Taking into account relevant developments, the mandate of the MFSO was refocused in 2011 on monitoring ASEAN economic integration, and was renamed as the ASEAN Integration Monitoring Office (AIMO). AIMO was responsible for managing the AEC 2015 Scorecard.

Since 1 January 2016, and following endorsement of the ASEC New Structure at the 17th Meeting of the ASEAN Coordinating Council, AIMO was regularised as AIMD.
