Cambodia: Involve People in ASEAN

Vireak in Cambodia argues that for the regional group ASEAN(Association of South East Asian Nations) to succeed, it needs more involvement of the people living in the region rather than the politicians. “Politically, we’re divided but our people have generally been getting along well. Why not using the people power to great effect? Leave it to country leaders alone, things may never progress. People have to play a part. That’s why educating the mass about the benefit of ASEAN as a group is important. “
