VPOTUS pool report 7 quotes and lid

Some VPOTUS quotes from remarks at the ASEAN secretariat.

"Our relationship without a doubt, has benefited both ASEAN and America, diplomatically, economically and from the standpoint of national security. The relationship between the United States and ASEAN is a strategic partnership."

"The President of the United States will attend the US-ASEAN summit, the East Asia summit and the APEC leaders meeting in Vietnam an the Philippines this November."

"It's a sign, I hope, to all, of our firm and unwavering commitment to build on the strong foundations that we already share."

"American exports to ASEAN member countries already support more than 550,000 jobs in the United States and almost 42,000 US companies already export more than a 100 billion dollars in goods and services to ASEAN nations every year. At the same time the United States imports a significant amount from ASEAN member nations as well. Amazingly US companies invest more in ASEAN and its members than any other part of Asia, more than 475 billion dollars, which is an investment which is more in fact than our investment in India, China and Japan combined."

VPOTUS is now back at the hotel and we have a lid. Night all.
