Secretary-General of ASEAN Dato Lim Jock Hoi and German Ambassador to Thailand Georg Schmidt will deliver their opening remarks before Don Pramudwinai, the Foreign Minister of Thailand, delivers his opening keynote speech on “ASEAN’s responses to the current global challenges.”

Dr Suthad Setboonsarng, an ASEAN specialist, will then speak on “What is ASEAN’s response in dealing with the ongoing trade war between China and the USA?”

There will also be a panel discussion on “Moving ASEAN Economic Integration Forward” featuring Dr. Hoe Ee Khor, Chief Economist of ASEAN+3 Macroeconomic Research Office; Manu Bhaskaran, Chief Executive Officer of Centennial Asia Advisors and Dr. Bandid Nijathaworn, Chairman of the Foundation for Public Policy and Good Governance and former Deputy Governor of the Bank of Thailand.

The highlight of the forum will be A dialogue titled “Assessing ASEAN: How the region can stay ahead of the business curve?” between Dato Lim Jock Hoi and Arin Jira, Chairman of the ASEAN Business Advisory Council Thailand and ASEAN media leaders.

ASEAN Secretariat’s Director for Community Affairs Lee Yoong Yoong said that the forum is part of the Secretariat’s continuous effort to enhance partnership with the region’s media leaders.

The media plays a critical role in ASEAN’s regional integration process. We hope that through this ASEAN Media Forum, media leaders would be in a better position to convey the ASEAN story to the people-on-the-ground as we bring ASEAN closer to its citizens

said Yoong Yoong.

The ASEAN Secretariat and the Deutsche Gessellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) jointly organise the event, in collaboration with the Foundation for Public Policy and Good Governance and with support of AirAsia.
