In a commentary, RSIS experts Shawn Ho and Kaewkamol Pitakdumrongkit wrote about how the two recent summits between South Korea and Asean members, held against the backdrop of South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s New Southern Policy (NSP), underline the growing importance South Korea attaches to the South-east Asian grouping.
