Abstract:Michael Plummer leads this issue of East-West Dialogue with a call for ambitious new initiatives leading to a U.S.-ASEAN economic space and a U.S.-ASEAN partnership fund to deepen civic and cultural ties. Plummer is joined by other expert commentators who agree the relationship is vital and offer further suggestions, confirming that gains from a deeper partnership are mutual and that the region is receptive to U.S. initiatives.

Marciel, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Southeast Asia and Ambassador for ASEAN Affairs; The American-ASEAN Relationship by Kishore Mahbubani, Dean, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore and former Ambassador to the United Nations from Singapore; Revitalizing ASEAN Competitiveness by Chalongphob Sussangkarn, Minister of Finance of Thailand (2007) and President, Thailand Development Research Institute (1996-2007).
