    In order to have strong economic ties like the European Union (EU), ASEAN requires solidity among member states to overcome disparities and to build a single market and production base, according to a former member of the European Parliament.

    Dr Christoph Konrad, former Member of the European Parliament and designated Secretary-General to the SME Union of the European’s People Party, said that solidarity was the headline of the integration process in the EU.

    Solidarity was a good investment for the future of both the country itself and the region. “No matter how big a country is, richer countries always pay for poorer countries. We all know that if our neighbor country is successful, then we are too”, Dr Konrad said.

    However, before lending a hand to other countries, each country should check their own strengths and weaknesses to ensure sustainable development.

    Don’t put off those plans to travel around the world much longer — a new survey shows hotel prices are at their lowest in over five years, thanks, in part, to the economic downturn.

    The latest Hotel Price Index (HPI), by hotel booking website Hotels.com, found average room prices across the globe fell 17 percent in the six months to June compared to the same 2008 period, and to the same levels as 2003, as the economic crisis kept away guests. (More …)
