Mark Beeson

Such diversity means that full agreement on any single issue can seem insurmountable.

Lee Hsien Loong

We can continue to chart positive trajectory for ASEAN-China relations.

That dynamic means that Duterte can expect his most meaningful face-time in Laos with other ASEAN embarrassments such as Cambodia's dictator Hun Sen, representatives of Thailand's military junta and his authoritarian Laotian hosts.

Walden Bello

Laos has now become one of the most rights-repressing countries in ASEAN: leaders in the region and from around the world must stop looking the other way, and demand Vientiane end its asphyxiation of independent civil society.

Carlos Ghosn - Renault

In Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), (Mitsubishi) makes more than 7% operating margins. In 2015, we had a negative margin. (Mitsubishi's) position of strength is our position of weakness. In Asean, they can support us a lot.
