Regional policy making is one of the communicative concepts in the field of political economy which shapes the regional connections between governments, multi-national corporations and economic organizations. These effective structures cannot establish sustainable cooperation among them unless they consider the social and cultural characteristics of their partners. In the other hand, regionalism cannot be significantly developed without reinforcing the associative connections between dissociated groups, people and societies. This paper has been prepared in accordance with regionalism experiences in East and South-East Asia. It could also be applicable and a guide model for countries located in South-West Asia. Associative coherence in East Asia firstly organized a variety of "world cities" and then provided the ground for transition process from "passive integration" to "proactive integration". Proactive integration occurs when regional policy making is in line with establishing economic interactions between countries through decreasing or removing the obstacles, on the other hand, integration strengthens the common factors between partners and economic structures. This integration is formed through conversion of regional markets into global markets. This paper attempts to explain the associative coherence in regional policy making based on interdisciplinary studies. To establish such integration, a combination of "Structuralism Approaches" and "Structural Regionalism" may be applicable efficiently. Realization of the associative coherence can be seen in organizing regional and world cities.
