Abstract: This paper intendsto provide an overview of the MPAC, and the suggested role of Far East Countries in implementing the MPAC. The impacts of MPAC can be expected to be largely positive, since better connectivity deters a wide range of at-the-border or behind-the-border restrictive measures and factors and can therefore help facilitate flows of goods, services, and persons across ASEAN. Altering the ASEAN border schemes and cost schedules will also affect the distribution ofthe population and the geographic location of economic industries. MPAC is thus plays a very role concept in the working agenda, covering project-based activities to improve physical connectivity, institutional connectivity, and people-to-people connectivity. The process is subject to various challenges due to the limitedcapacities of some ASEAN member states, relativelyfew or small sources of local finance, the absence of monitoring mechanisms, etc. This also presents room for a larger role for Far East countries – key partners of ASEAN in the East Asian integration process. In particular, these countries can assume significant roles in various areas, from identifying a broader framework for regional integration and cooperation in all identified areas of ASEAN connectivity, to monitoring mechanisms, and to the mobilizations of resources and mechanisms for implementation.
