ASEAN Summit kicks off in Philippines
    2017-November-14  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE 31st Summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and related meetings opened in Manila, the Philippines, yesterday, with leaders of 10 ASEAN member countries and dialogue partners convening to discuss security, cooperation and regional integration.

The Philippines, ASEAN’s rotating chair for 2017, set the theme of “Partnering for Change, Engaging the World,” putting security and regional integrity high on the agenda.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said that the next two days will present excellent opportunities for ASEAN leaders and their dialogue partners to engage in meaningful discussions on matters of regional and international importance.

The non-traditional security issues are challenging “the prosperity of regional economies, the integrity of our institutions, and more importantly the safety of ASEAN people,” Duterte said.

Leaders of 10 ASEAN countries and six of its dialogue partners, namely Australia, China, India, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand, will meet for their first Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) leaders’ meeting today, the first such meeting after related negotiations started in 2012.

Established in 1967, ASEAN, which groups Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. The ASEAN Community, with the Political-Security Community, the Economic Community and the Socio-Cultural Community as three pillars, was established at the end of 2015.
