Singapore is seriously considering electricity imports from its neighbors to add to its energy mix, Minister at the Prime Minister's Office Mr .S Iswaran said on Thursday.

'We are currently reviewing our regulatory framework and studying various trading models that could facilitate electricity imports in the medium term,' said Mr Iswaran.

This could 'catalyse more opportunities for energy cooperation' across Asean (the Association of Southeast Asian Nations), he added.

This will help ensure competitively- or lower-priced energy prices and improve Singapore's energy security.
Speaking at the fourth Asean and Asia Forum organised by the Singapore Institute of International Affairs, Mr Iswaran said the case for regional energy cooperation 'has never been stronger'.

'In the case of Asean, an aggregated regional energy market would be better able to attract investments as there would be greater demand assurance. With new investments and collaboration, more energy sources within the region can be unlocked. This, augmented by competitive imports, will boost overall energy supply security,' he said.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. 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
