A decade after living through the devastating experience of the 2009 ASEAN summit, the kingdom will have another chance to regain its regional leadership and reputation. Singapore will pass the baton to Thailand on Nov 15 as the ASEAN chair. Although the official role will kick off in January, Bangkok will get the ball rolling immediately.
