Mekong countries eye bold new future - Kavi Chongkittavorn

 When lead characters in a Chinese kung fu movie drink wine from the same cup, they are considered sworn brothers. They will fight and die together. Will all six riparian countries of the Lancang, or Mekong (Lan-Mei), share the same spirit of camaraderie as they all live on this magnificent river? There may be ominous signs during the Second Summit of the Lancang-Mekong Cooperation (LMC) on Jan 10-11 in Phnom Penh.

There may be ominous signs during the Second Summit of the Lancang-Mekong Cooperation (LMC) on Jan 10-11 in Phnom Penh.

 

At the two-day event, the leaders of China, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia will attempt to transform the Mekong into the river of peace and sustainable development. Although the Beijing-led LMC venture started just 888 days ago, all six countries have committed to work together and move forward both in "speed" and "efficiency".
