Chances are I'll fail... but yeah.

http://www.smh.com.au...

"Asia's borders and develop a highly connected trading community in the region."

Trade can be bad, especially in developing countries, such as China, that have a corrupt government.



"And while it will no doubt encounter some hurdles and foot-dragging along the way "


They are admitting themselves its hard, which I think your argument (only a bit) hypocritical.

"Australian companies, and professional services firms especially, will need to get to grips with the ramifications swiftly, or risk being muscled out of some rare opportunities. "

More evidence its bad.


"East and west, the two mighty economies of China and India would be linked by a vastly upgraded highway system from China through Laos, Thailand and Burma to India. And a huge railway network would link Singapore in the south to Kunming in China, threading through Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. "

How much money will this "rail" cost? Alot.


"Sadly, much coverage of ASEAN meetings tends to focus on what coloured shirts the leaders wore to dinner or who stood next to whom in group photos. "

You shouldn't trust this company too much...

I am dismayed to see that my opponent's argument, though the debate made by him/herself, failed to post a argument in time. I will ask to extend my argument from argument 1. I also have already rebutted his two-word argument from argument 1, so...

>_* POTATOES!
