The 34th ASEAN Summit got down to the main agenda today Saturday as leaders from various ASEAN countries arrived in Bangkok for the regional talk-fest.

This morning leaders who were in attendance at the Athenee Hotel were Malaysian PM Mahathir Bin Mohamad, Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah, Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, President of  The Philippines Rodrigo Duterte, Laos PM Thongloun Sisoulith and Cambodian PM Hun Sen.

The ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting took place this morning from 9.30am to 10.30am, and the Special ASEAN Economic Ministers’ Meeting on the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership was also on from 9am to 1pm.

The region’s leaders are meeting this afternoon during the main event of the 34th ASEAN Summit and will be followed tonight by a gala dinner for the ASEAN leaders and ASEAN secretary-general.

Tomorrow’s key events include the opening ceremony of the 34th ASEAN Summit and the ASEAN Summit Retreat. Finally, a press conference will be held with Thai PM Prayut Chan-o-cha tomorrow afternoon.

Expect the parade-of-silly-shirts to be on tomorrow as the regional leaders dress up in a quasi local ethnic-themed apparel.
