ISIS Malaysia had hosted the Asia-Pacific Roundtable series since its launch in 1987 to promote trust and confidence in the Asia-Pacific region.
As a Track Two forum, the APR brought together think tanks, academics, media representatives and senior government officials acting in their personal capacity to engage in candid dialogue regarding major security challenges confronting the region. This year’s conference saw the attendance of over 300 scholars, government officials, policy makers and opinion leaders from across the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe and West Asia. A special address was given by The Honorable Dato’ Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, Minister of Defence, Malaysia, in Plenary One on “Regional Security in the Asia Pacific: Present State and Future Trajectories”. He posited, nonetheless, that a strong and successful ASEAN can be a stabilizing influence in the region. The special address of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, His Excellency Mr. Saleumxay Kommasith, in Plenary Two on “The ASEAN Community: Integration in an Age of Contending Interests” focused on the ASEAN Economic Community. Yet the current changing regional environment presented an opportunity for ASEAN to boost its relevance and role in the regional architecture.
