November 26, 2019 / Jalelah Abu Baker

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and South Korea should work together to push for multilateral and regional economic integration, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on Tuesday (Nov 26). This was one way in which the regional bloc and the Republic of Korea (ROK) could drive their relationship forward, Mr Lee suggested at a plenary session on the second day of the ASEAN-ROK Commemorative Summit. The two-day summit in the South Korean city Busan celebrates the 30th anniversary of dialogue partnership between the two sides. During his speech, Mr Lee said that the broad-based partnership between ASEAN and South Korea has been “further strengthened” under South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s New Southern Policy (NSP), which aims to cultivate relations with ASEAN and India as key partners.
