(March 3, 2020) What might have been at Vegas summit

The Asean officials preparing for the March 14 special Asean-US Summit were greatly relieved when the White House announced on Friday that the Las Vegas rendezvous would be postponed due to Covid-19 fears. Indeed, with exactly two weeks to go before the event, the Asean side was still wondering what the "deliverable milestones" of their summit were likely to be.

After all, the draft of the joint statement, the most important outcome document, between the US and Asean that was expected to come out at the end of the summit was not yet in circulation for comment. And judging by the tentative agenda for March 14, it seemed President Donald Trump was betting on a transactional negotiating game with all the individual members rather than treating Asean as a group of 10. Apart from the two-hour working dinner, most of the daytime would be spent on bilateral meetings with each of the Asean leaders.
