18 Jun

Via Asia News Network:

“Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is calling on Asian countries to work together as the ‘moment has come’ to make the region “the continent of the future.

‘I notice that this newfound confidence is not particular to Indonesia. You can see it throughout Asia. In my heart I do believe that Asia’s moment has come, and that a much brighter future lies ahead. But we cannot take this for granted,’ Yudhoyono said in the opening remarks of the WEF at the Shangri-La Hotel in Jakarta on Sunday (June 12).

Second, he said, Asia must address growing pressures from food, energy and water insecurity, as 60 percent of the world’s 7 billion people live in Asia.”
