In 2008, the parties to the MoU gave their consents on the nomenclature of ‘South East Asia Parties against Corruption’ (SEA-PAC)

With the exception of Myanmar, which has yet to sign the MoU, SEA-PAC geographically covers the same region as the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN). However, SEA-PAC is not accredited in the ASEAN framework but it has a similar strategic plan, a more flexible, informal structure and working system, based on information sharing and consensus.
