Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Politico | Biden's summit with Southeast Asian leaders ["indefinitely"] postponed, 25 Mar
President Joe Biden will instead meet on Tuesday [29 Mar] with Singapore's prime minister, Lee Hsien Loong, to discuss both U.S. interests in the Indo-Pacific region, such as supply chains and maritime security, as well as the bloody conflict in Ukraine.
"It seems that the event is experiencing scheduling turbulence, with more than one of the key ASEAN members unable to move or cancel pre-existing commitments on dates that the USA has proposed," said Kurt Tong, a partner at The Asia Group. "It is challenging given the long ten-member ASEAN roster and that organization's strong desire for inclusiveness."
ASEAN means business: Brunei (.BN, BND), Cambodia (.KH, KHR), Indonesia (.ID, IDR), Lao DPR (.LA, LAK), Malaysia (.MY, MYR), Myanmar (.MM, MMK), Philippines (.PH, PHP), Singapore (.SG, SGD), Thailand (.TH, THB), Viet Nam (.VN, VND)
