Okay, thank you for your kind indulgence.
I am pleased to open this Summit, aware of the steady progress the sub-regional economic cooperation has achieved.
It continues to play a key role in attaining our goals under the initiative of ASEAN integration.
At this juncture, let me call on Philippine Signing Minister for BIMP-EAGA, Datu Abdul Khayr Alonto to present the report of the recent developments in the sub-region.
