Cambodia as ASEAN Chair

NZ Ambassador to Indonesia and ASEAN, HE Mr David Taylor meets with the Cambodian Minister of Commerce, HE Mr Prasidh Cham

"Last year, the ASEAN chair was occupied by the regional Goliath, Indonesia. This year sees the first of three David’s take on the role. Cambodia holds the tiller in 2012, Brunei in 2013 and Myanmar in 2014.

"Heading into this year, ASEAN watchers wondered whether these small countries could pull off regional leadership given the complexity of the agenda, their own limited human resources and the challenges of hosting major meetings."
