Discussion: Lancang-Mekong Cooperation

The first Lancang-Mekong Cooperation (LMC) Leaders’ Meeting kicked off in Sanya in China’s Hainan Province, with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and others in attendance. Running with the theme of “Shared River, Shared Future”, the conference was expected to focus on security and development, as well as political, social and cultural fields. In past years, the mechanism has benefited people living along the rivers. What is the significance of the LMC mechanism, which was added into the Chinese diplomatic lexicon last year? What are the priorities for the six participating countries, and how might the LMC benefit people’s lives in the region? Join us for a chat with Mr. Teng Jianqun, Director of the Center of Arms Control at the China Institute of International Studies; Mr. Song Qingrun from the China Institute of Contemporary International Relations; and in Bangkok, Mr. Sean Boonpracong, former advisor to the Thai government.
