EFN Asia 68 / API 1, Launching of API in Singapore

The Economic Freedom Network (EFN) South East Asia has officially been renamed and launched as ASEAN Prosperity Inititive (API) last December 11, 2018 at a half-day conference at Intercontinental Singapore Robertson Quay, organized by IDEAS (Malaysia). I was there.

Below, IDEAS CEO Ali Salman giving the welcome message.

Audience came from multilaterals, bilaterals, governments (Indonesia, Singapore), corporate, academe, think tanks and media.

Panel discussion, Deborah Elms of Asia Trade Center (ATC) speaking. Deborah is frank, as usual.

One of the slides by Janant Menon. This could be one reason why anti EU bureaucracy is much larger than anti ASEAN bureaucracy, and ASEAN economies growing faster.

Materials are available here,
