    SV Dr. Mahathir speaking. TRANSCRIPT: MAHATHIR: "We cannot prosper alone in a region that is in turmoil and unstable. To prosper, we have to have the kind of regional environment that is conductive with economic growth. Malaysia's adherence to the principles of ASEAN co-operation is therefore not altruistic. It is enlightened self-interest, and because it is so, we will always place the interests of ASEAN as a top priority."

    TRANSCRIPT: MAHATHIR: "We cannot prosper alone in a region that is in turmoil and unstable. To prosper, we have to have the kind of regional environment that is conductive with economic growth.

    Background: A three-day Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) Economic Ministers meeting began in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday (14 January), with high hopes of improving trade between member countries. There have been doubts recently about the viability of ASEAN as an economically-integrated region. But at the same time, Europe is looking to the area with a conviction that it eventually will prove to be one of the world's more dynamic regions for foreign trade and investment. The meeting, in the Nirwana Ballroom of the Kuala Lumpur Hilton Hotel, was opened by Malaysia Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Doctor Mahathir Mohamed.
