(October 15, 2019) Why Germany is seeking deeper ties with Asean

With supersonic speed in terms of the decision and process, Germany will accede to the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation (TAC) in around two weeks' time. If everything goes as planned on the German side, which requires cabinet endorsement, there will be a signing ceremony in Bangkok during the 35th Asean Summit from Oct 31-Nov 2. Bahrain will also join the ceremony.

Germany's accession to the TAC took the Asean authorities by surprise as it came out of the blue. Last month, Germany began to sound out all Asean members about the possibility of joining the TAC. Without any Asean objections, Berlin proceeded quickly to become a signatory; just in time, too, as the Asean foreign ministers are scheduled to discuss Bahrain's TAC status. It was only two years ago that Germany was accorded development partner status in Vientiane.
