Asian nations led by Thailand opened their first summit of the Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) on October 16 in Kuwait, aimed at promoting cooperation and dialogue in a range of issues including food security, energy, financing and technology.

Thailand’s prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra travelled to Kuwait accompanied by a group of Thai businesspeople from various sectors such as industry, jewellery and medical services to meet with potential investors from the Gulf country.

The two-day summit of the 32-member ACD is also expected to focus on ways to reinvigorate and sustain regional cooperation to protect the member nations against the festering global economic crisis, organisers said.

Initiated by Thailand in 2002, the ACD summits further bring together leaders, foreign ministers and senior officials from Asia’s major economies – South Korea, China, Japan, India and ASEAN – as well as leading oil producers such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, in addition to Iran and Russia. Latest members joining the ACD were Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Afghanistan. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is among leaders attending at the Kuwait meeting.

Pakistan is set to host the Asia Cooperation Dialogue summit in 2014.
