East Asian Economic Grouping

A proposed free trade zone for East and Southeast Asian nations. Originally suggested in 1990, it never came to fruition in part because it specifically excluded non-Asian nations, and Japan did not want to alienate the United States, one of its major trade partners. It was also called the East Asian Economic Caucus.
