ASEAN finance ministers in US

ASEAN finance ministers are in the US to participate in a roadshow with the programme expected to culminate in a gala dinner "celebrating the US-ASEAN relationship and highlighting the efforts and achievements of the ASEAN economic ministers," an invitation sent by the US-ASEAN Business Council stated yesterday.

According to the invitation, Brunei's Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade II Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Pekerma Dewa Dato Seri Setia Lim Jock Seng is among the confirmed guests who will be attending the dinner.

Other guests include the rest of the ASEAN trade ministers and diplomats as well as US government officials.

The US-ASEAN Business Council, in collaboration with the US and ASEAN governments, is organising a roadshow for the ASEAN economic and trade ministers to Los Angeles, Silicon Valley and Washington.

"The visit will culminate in dinner celebrating the US-ASEAN relationship and highlighting the achievements of the ASEAN economic ministers," the invitation read.

The programme began on June 10 and ends on June 14.

As of press time, an email to the business council was not returned and no further details of the delegates' itineraries were available.

In November last year, US President Obama and the 10 leaders of the regional bloc elevated the ASEAN-US trade and investment relationship by welcoming the launch of the US-ASEAN Expanded Economic Engagement (E3) initiative, according to information on the Office of the United States Trade Representative.

The initiative is a new framework for economic cooperation designed to expand trade and investment ties between the United States and ASEAN, creating new business opportunities and jobs in all eleven countries.

In 2012, trade between US and the ASEAN hit US$198 billion ($249 billion), up from US$145 billion in 2009, making ASEAN the fourth largest US export market and fifth largest overall trading partner. Fitri Shahminan

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
