KUALA LUMPUR, Former ministers from Malaysia and Thailand believe that ASEAN's third- and second-largest economies in ASEAN respectively, can lead the way in pushing for an integrated region encompassing infrastructure, trade and investments, and people. This can be facilitated through better connectivity between both economies, catalysing greater regionalism within the bloc itself.
This was the call made during the ASEAN Roundtable Series organised by the CIMB ASEAN Research Institute (CARI) in collaboration with the Royal Thai Embassy in Malaysia. The theme of the roundtable discussion concerned the future of Thai-Malaysia connectivity and its implications for ASEAN regionalism.
