The Centre for East Asia Foundation (CEAF) is a non-profit, non-political, independent study circle engaged in research and analysis of geopolitical developments and economic opportunities

in the south-eastern flank of Asia beyond Bangladesh borders. The Foundation is committed to enhance understanding and to strengthen ties of the people and the policymakers of Bangladesh with those of East Asian and south-East Asian Countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Apart from foreign policy and economic diplomacy of the countries involved, the Foundation also focuses on human development, human security, trade relations, security co-operation, counter terrorism, good governance and climate change experiences in the region. An additional interest of the Foundation is to study the extent and impact of US-led globalization process in Asia, and the emerging multi-polarity of the matrix of world order in the twenty-first century.

The CEAF is charting out a program to bring together International Guests, Civil Society Organizations, Media and Academic Experts for brainstorming from time to time over problems and prospects of the globalization process in the region including the Millennium Development Goals, the WTO rounds, the Green bargains, continuing battles against terror, the crisis of capitalism, social business and distribution of wealth, and other ideas for sustained and balanced future global and regional growth. CEAF will also correspond with likeminded counterparts to devise ways to enhance people-to-people contacts and enlarge civic role in back-channel diplomacy between Bangladesh and all other countries in the Asia-Pacific region.

Bangladesh is located between two Asian giants, China and India. Its geographical position capping the Bay of Bengal gives Bangladesh a unique incentive to connect two major regional forums, SAARC and ASEAN. The process of redesigning the vision of Bangladesh and extending its external relations across the Bay of Bengal to the East and South East, through Myanmar-China silk roads and across the Himalayan passages to Eurasian matrix of growth, across the Indian Ocean to Africa and the Middle East, and freshening up our continuing ties with the West in the emerging rules-based regional and global order remains a special field of research by CEAF. Our focus in public debates and in people-to-people exchanges will, however, remain on developing proactive relations with South-East Asia.
