Regional order in East Asia after summits - Thitinan Pongsudhirak

 Four Asean leaders assume the traditional cross-handed 'unity' photo op following the 31st Asean summit in Manila on Tuesday. From left, From left, Brunei Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, Indonesia President Joko Widodo, Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Razak and Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.

While Asean-related leaders' meetings tend to come and go with a lot of spectacle and brouhaha without much lasting substantive impact, the recently concluded summits of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation in Vietnam and the United States-Asean and the East Asia Summit in the Philippines will be seen in hindsight as highly consequential.
