Asean+3 finance meet scheduled for Feb in Phuket, Thailand
Thai Finance Minister Korn Chatikavanij said Friday that Thailand will host the next meeting of finance ministers of the 10 Asean countries plus Japan, China, and South Korea on Feb. 22 in the resort island of Phuket.

Kyodo news agency quoted Korn as telling reporters that the finance ministers will meet to discuss ways to strengthen financial cooperation and protect the region from the global financial crisis.

He added that a statement will be issued at the conclusion of the meeting to be discussed during the Asean summit , which will be held at the beach resort of Hua Hin from February 27 to March 1.

The finance minister also said that since the region cannot rely on Western countries anymore in terms of the economy, he wanted the three counterparts to take more action.

At the meeting, the Asean-plus-three finance ministers will also discuss the progress of the Chiang Mai Initiative, a program of financial cooperation launched in 2000.

The Asean-plus-three finance ministerial meeting was originally scheduled to be held in January in Bangkok, but it was postponed due to Thailand's recent political unrest.
