In dialogue with Amb David Carden, the US Ambassador to ASEAN

Greetings Readers. Back in February, I was invited to meet Ambassador David Lee Carden, the United States Ambassador to ASEAN. Rano and a couple of others from the newspapers were there as well. We had about an hour's worth of dialogue with the Ambassador; I wish we had more time! He spoke about his journey and role, about food security, the impact of the depletion of natural resources, the importance of water, animal welfare, the significance of the youth, agriculture, trade, the economy, education, etc.

What I really appreciated was the fact that throughout the session, no question was off-limits. The session was fast-paced, frank, thorough and thoughtful. To get a sense of the dialogue, check out this link to Storify; Ambassador David (@USMission2ASEAN) took and responded to questions via Twitter a couple of days prior including the following.
