(November 20, 2018) 4 big challenges for Thailand as Asean chair - Kavi Chongkittavorn

Last week, Singapore handed the incoming Asean chair, Thailand, four formidable challenges that would define Asean's centrality and its relevance, not to mention the kingdom's leadership role. These issues are the nascent Indo-Pacific concept, the Rakhine crisis, peace and security on the Korean Peninsula, and the drafting of a code of conduct (COC) on the South China Sea.

Despite Thailand's decision to focus on the theme of "Advancing Partnership in Sustainability" -- putting a human face and sustainability on the Asean scheme of things -- these issues will certainly keep the chair engaged and Asean on its toes. It will be one of the most exciting years of Asean chairmanship and summits, as it coincides with the political opening and election in the kingdom. Truth be told, the Prayut Chan-o-cha government has to be prepared for any eventuality.
