On August 8, 1967 the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) was established. It was first established with five members, namely, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. Then on January 8, 1984, Brunei Darussalam joined, followed by Vietnam on July 28, 1995, Lao PDR and Myanmar on July 23, 1997 and Cambodia on April 30, 1999.

The ten countries agreed to commemorate the 40th anniversary by featuring ancient or modern architectural structure from each country as the main subject or theme of the joint stamp issue, with each member issuing the same set of ten designs with its own country name and face value.

The Philippine Postal Corporation chose the Malacanang Palace for this joint stamp issue. Malacanang Palace is the official residence of the President of the Philippines and is considered to be one of the most historic structures in the Philippines.
