Surin was Asean’s de facto foreign minister - Kavi Chongkittavorn

 It was the spring of 2007. The application deadline was quickly approaching for a qualified Thai candidate to serve as the 12th Asean secretary-general.

The five-year tenure was open to all Thai citizens. The frenzied search came at the most exciting time in Asean’s 40-year history because the group’s charter was in the making. Thailand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs knew full well that the successful candidate had to be very special to kick off the new era of Asean. After some internal debate, instead of the common practice of keeping the selection process only among senior foreign ministry officials, the government of Prime Minister Surayud Chulanond decided to go public with an open recruitment.
