Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin will attend the special Asea-Australia Summit in Melbourne, Australia, on March 4-6 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of their diplomatic relations, according to an informed diplomatic source.

 

He will attend the three-day meeting along with other invited Asean leaders, except the Myanmar leader, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing. Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao from Timor Leste will also join the summit, according to the source. Dili is expected to become the 11th member of Asean soon.

 

The special summit will be hosted by Australian Prime Minister Antony Albanese which will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC).

Recent whisper revealed a potential visa arrangement proposed for Australians who wanted to visit Thailand - a reciprocal arrangement similar to that which exists throughout all Asean nations. Maybe now is the time that Australia should be recognized as another Asean nation as was proposed way back when. Paul Keating was PM at the time. The underwhelming response by Singapore's Lee Kwan Yew put the kybosh on that idea opining that Australia should not be part of Asean because it was a European country not Asian. I think now is the time to be more thoughtfully diplomatic and consider inclusion as a positive and beneficial step in the right direction.

New Zealand also as Asians make up a greater proportion of the population than indigenous folk.

Australia is richer than most on the Asean list. Why would it want to be flooded with thais ECT who will drag down wages 

Trade tourism defense education all benefit. Diversity inclusion equity left to socialist countries.

How does tourism benefit. Thailand is a poor country with little to offer. The average daily wage is well below Australia which is a very expensive country in comparison. 

And again trade, Australia is resource rich in minerals they really need to focus on producing there own goods and products. Doing business with a corrupt country like Thailand has little to offer and lastly defence is the very worst idea. Asean is heavily in hock to china and Russia our enemies here in the west. I see no good coming out of it

With respect, my reference primarily was regarding ASEAN, not specifically Thailand
