It’s not easy to discuss what ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) is to regular people. It’s even more difficult to discuss ASEAN with consumers and farmers. So it has been our mission to try and explain what ASEAN means to the consumer, the importer, the exporter and then the farmer.
What bothers us also bothers the Indonesian and the Thai farmer. The other member states (as they are called) produce the same things, have the same crops, and probably have the same situation when it comes to producing goods. Take the Thai farmer or the Vietnamese farmer. They can both grow rice. Who has the better yield?
