BANGKOK: The Asia Co-operation Dialogue (ACD), to be held here today, is a young establishment set up in 2002.
Mooted by Thailand, this is a continent-wide forum that aims to be the “missing link” in Asia by incorporating every Asian country and building an Asian community without duplicating other organisations.
The idea is for the member states to act together to contribute to sustainable growth for Asia and beyond, explore opportunities that can help reduce poverty, expand the trade and financial market within Asia and increase the bargaining power of member countries.
They have identified 20 areas of co-operation such as connectivity; science, technology and innovation; education and human resource development; food, energy and water security; and promoting inclusive and sustainable development.
From 18 countries, including Malaysia at the start of the Dialogue, its membership has since expanded to 34 nations.
Albeit a new platform, there are already success stories that have emerged from the Dialogue, including the realisation of a Malaysian initiative, the Asia e-University.
Malaysia promoted the importance of education and human resources development as the country wanted other partners to realise the need to equip people with skills and knowledge in order for other nation-building efforts to succeed.
The result is the setting up of the university in 2007 in Kuala Lumpur – a testimony of Malaysia’s role as the prime-mover of e-education among ACD countries.
At the coming Dialogue, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will present Malaysia’s views on the need to ensure better connectivity among member states.
Malaysian Ambassador to Thailand Datuk Nazirah Hussain said Najib was expected to raise this as efficient network and connectivity would translate to stronger social and economic growth.
“The Prime Minister’s participation at the summit reflects Malaysia’s continued commitment to strengthen the ACD as an effective regional forum,” she added.
On a personal note, the Prime Minister sees the summit as an opportunity to have more engagements with his Thai counterpart Prayuth Chan-ocha.
“The Prime Minister has always enjoyed warm relations with his Thai counterpart,” said an official.///

DAVAO CITY, Philippines – To get rid of corruption in government, President Duterte will open an anti-corruption text hotline and the complaints will be aired every morning over government-run PTV 4.
“I am opening a new daily program over PTV 4 that will be aired every morning and it will do nothing but run the complaints texted to the hotline that will be sent directly to Malacañang,” the President said during the National Banana Congress held at the SMX Convention Center at the SM Lanang Premiere here on Friday afternoon.
“Just let me know if there is corruption in a city hall, in the (application of) business permit…During my time (as mayor of Davao City), these are processed in three days.”
Duterte said he needs the help of every Filipino in the fight against corruption.
“I am pleading to the people. I promised you no corruption. But if I do not get your help, if you surrender, then there is nothing I can do. All you have to do is text what office, whether local or national, who is the official causing the delay, and I will call him or her to go to Malacañang for them to explain why,” he said.
“If you do not help me, I cannot erase corruption. I cannot just go to any office and start asking anybody…You have to tell me.

The President also warned pranksters, saying they would be dealt with accordingly.
“I don’t like anybody fooling me. I don’t like you to fool me because I used to fool around,” he said in jest, recalling how his mother used to punish him by having him kneel on munggo seeds as he faced the altar.
Duterte said that all he wants is to have a good name.
“There is no issue against me with regard to graft and corruption. Women, yes, but money, no,” he said.
He asked where he would bring the money when he does not have anything to spend it on. He noted that he could not even get out of Malacañang or go anywhere without the President Security Group following him.
Duterte remains baffled why corruption is prevalent in government transactions despite his stern warning to government officials and employees that they will face his wrath if they will not stop their wrongdoings.
“I cannot understand really and so I’d like to know where the corruption is still prevalent,” he said.
He lamented anew that the country would not progress if corruption and criminality are not properly addressed.
“What could bring us down is really corruption and criminality,” he said.
The President announced his anti-corruption campaign after he received international condemnation for his bloody war against drugs, which was marked by alleged summary killings and human rights abuses.///

PORT KLANG, Malaysia, Oct. 7 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese naval fleet arrived at the Malaysian port of Klang on Friday to embark on a four-day visit aimed at strengthening military ties between the two countries.
The 23rd Escort Task Group, comprising Xiangtan, Zhoushan and Chaohu of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy, arrived in Malaysia after the completion of its escort mission in the Gulf of Aden.
They were greeted by leaders of the Malaysian Chinese community and Chinese living in Malaysia.
Senior colonel Wang Hongli, commander of the task force, said the visit would contribute to the development of the friendly relations.
"China and Malaysia are friendly neighbours, and we have good relations and frequent exchanges between our two countries and the two militaries," he said.
During the visit, the vessels will open to the Malaysian public and the crew will interact with the local community.Xinhua

TOKYO: Nearly 1 in 4 companies have admitted that some employees do more than 80 hours of overwork per month, according to the nation’s first white paper released Friday on karoshi, or death by overwork.
According to the survey, taken between last December and January this year, about 10.8 percent of companies said they had workers putting in 80 to 100 hours of overtime a month, while another 11.9 percent said they had workers doing more than 100 hours.
The paper, said to be the first of its kind in the world, was based on responses from 1,743 companies and 19,583 workers. It had targeted 10,000 firms and 20,000 employees.
The document was adopted by the government as part of measures to combat karoshi, in line with a law that came into effect in November 2014.
By industry, IT workers were found to be the most overworked, with 44.4 percent of IT companies that responded to the survey saying some of their employees did more than 80 hours of overtime per month. For academic, research and engineering-sector organizations the number was 40.5 percent, followed by transport and postal services companies at 38.4 percent.
Meanwhile, the government acknowledged 96 deaths from strokes and heart attacks as being work related and awarded compensation to such karoshi victims in fiscal 2015 ending in March, while it awarded compensation in 93 cases where people distressed by work-related problems committed or attempted suicide. Experts, however, have long said criteria used for the state compensation scheme is too narrow and that the actual number of people who die from overwork is much higher.
According to National Police Agency statistics, 2,159 people committed suicide due at least in part to work-related problems in 2015.
Emiko Teranishi, 67, the head of the nationwide network of family members of karoshi victims, praised the publication of the white paper, which was reported to the Diet.
Teranishi said the 280-page document carried special significance for the group, which had played a key role in the introduction of the karoshi prevention law and other measures against the phenomenon.
The white paper not only tallies related statistics but dedicates a chapter to how karoshi became a social issue in the 1980s, leading to grass-roots movements for reform.
However, Teranishi said the government should do more to eradicate karoshi through firm measures to keep companies from exploiting loopholes in labor laws as well as tougher penalties for violators.
Teranishi lost her husband to suicide resulting from work pressures 20 years ago. The then-manager of a soba noodle restaurant in Kyoto Prefecture, Teranishi’s husband became sleep-deprived and depressed as the recession hit, sales plummeted and work burdens increased.
“He worked 4,000 hours a year,” Teranishi said. “The company had him punch a time card every day, so it knew that he worked that hard. In the days before his death, he had told his boss he had no appetite, he couldn’t sleep and was exhausted. The company knew he was at high risk (of karoshi).”
Teranishi expressed both “hope and concern” toward recent government moves to put caps on the number of working hours.
A government panel on work-style reform, headed by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, started discussing such changes last month. But only one member of the panel represents workers — a head of a federation of labor unions, she pointed out.
The government has set a goal of lowering the percentage of employees working more than 60 hours a week to 5 percent of the total workforce. It also wants all workers to take at least 70 percent of their paid holidays by 2020.
The anti-karoshi law mandates the central and local governments to research various factors behind overwork, as well as raise awareness, beef up consultation programs and aid private-sector support groups.///

YANGON - At least two policemen were killed in coordinated attacks by an unknown group on posts along Myanmar's border with Bangladesh early Sunday morning, an official and police said.
"According to initial information, two police officers were killed, two others were injured and six police are missing," Tin Maung Swe, a senior official within Rakhine's state government told AFP.
A police official in the capital Nay Pyi Taw confirmed three places were attacked but declined to give further details.
A second police source also confirmed the attacks, adding as many as eight policemen might have been killed, as well as some of the attackers.
A number of weapons were also seized by the assailants from the border posts, that officer added.
Rakhine has been effectively split on religious grounds since bouts of communal violence tore through the state in 2012, killing scores and forcing tens of thousands to flee.
The Muslim Rohingya are largely confined to camps and slapped with restrictions that rights groups have likened to apartheid.
Several complex ethnic conflicts are rumbling across Myanmar's borderlands, hampering efforts to build the country's economy after the end of junta rule.
But compared to the country's civil war-ravaged eastern and northern border states, Rakhine does not boast a significant rebel military presence.
In the last few years the Arakan Army, a small Buddhist militia which wants an independent homeland in the state, have fought sporadic battles with the military.
Despite their plight the Rohingya do not have a known militant faction fighting for them.
However many fear their continued plight could drive them to adopt more violent solutions.
In May armed attackers stormed a security post at a camp for Rohingya refugees in southern Bangladesh just across the border from Maungdaw.
In that attack a Bangladeshi camp commander was shot dead and the assailants made off with weapons.
Police at the time said the Rohingya themselves could be suspects.
In recent years Bangladeshi police have also alleged that Rohingya refugees are involved in criminal activities including human trafficking.
Any uptick in violence in Rakhine will be a major concern for the new civilian-led government of Aung San Suu Kyi.
She has asked former UN chief Kofi Annan to head a commission tasked with trying to heal sectarian divisions in the state.
The move was largely welcomed by Rohingya community leaders but drew ire from Buddhist nationalists.
Anti-Muslim sentiment still runs high in the impoverished region, fanned by hardline Buddhist nationalists who revile the Rohingya and are viscerally opposed to any move to grant them citizenship.
They insist the roughly one-million strong group are intruders from neighbouring Bangladesh, even though many can trace their ancestry in Myanmar back generations.///

HO CHI MINH CITY, Oct. 8 (Xinhua) -- Vietnam's Health Ministry announced that a pregnant woman in southern Binh Duong province and a woman in Ho Chi Minh City have been infected with Zika virus, lifting the total number of Zika patients in the country to five.
The 27-year-old pregnant woman, who lives in the town of Thuan An in Binh Duong province, has neither toured nor contacted Zika patients before contracting Zika virus.
The 28-year-old woman from Ho Chi Minh's District 9 had not traveled far away before being infected with the virus.
The two women are now in good health conditions. Local authorities are taking measures to prevent new cases of Zika infections.
Zika virus has been spotted in over 40 countries in the world since it first surfaced in Uganda in the 1940s.
The virus is linked with cases of newborns with shrunken heads and brains.///

BEIJING: China's Finance Minister Lou Jiwei says the Group of 20 nations will need to promote policy coordination amid growing uncertainty surrounding the global economy.
Lou spoke to reporters on Friday after G20 finance ministers and central bank chiefs wrapped up their talks in Washington. China chaired the meeting.
Lou said uncertainty and risks facing the global economy have increased, as some major economies are preparing for elections. He did not mention any specific nation, but apparently had in mind the US presidential campaign.
Lou also cited the impact of Britain's exit from the European Union as a factor driving uncertainty.
The Chinese finance minister noted it is necessary to employ all policy means to support global economic growth.
He apparently called for G20 nations to cooperate in mobilizing monetary, fiscal, and structural policy measures.///
