    This article analyses trade potential of a prospective ASEAN currency union by using the event study approach. The model specification captures the possible trade benefit for ASEAN currency union at a hypothetical level of ASEAN economic integration similar to the European Union. The empirical results show that the projected trade benefit is 21 per cent of ASEAN GDP indicating that an ASEAN currency union would be beneficial if ASEAN members reach the desired integration level at a cost less than 21 per cent of their GDP.
