Pivoting the Section

Vol. 43 No. 3


Gabrielle M. Buckley, chair of the Section of International Law, is a shareholder in the Chicago office of Vedder Price, P.C. She heads the firm's Business Immigration practice.

As the Obama administration “pivoted” to East Asia, the Section “pivots” to Southeast Asia in this issue of ILN. This special Southeast Asia issue builds upon the tremendous success of this year’s ILEX trip to Myanmar and Cambodia, about which Finance Officer Sara Sandford reports. Marlon Wui, Joel Loo, and Himawan G. Hatman, lawyers with Kelvin Chia Partnership in Singapore, contribute a major article on legal aspects of international investment in the hot economies of Myanmar, Thailand, and Indonesia. Next, Albert Vincent Yu Chang, former co-chair of the Asia Pacific Committee and a member of both the ILN Editorial Board and the Section’s Books Board, reviews how peace prospects in Mindanao in the Philippines may lead to increased investment and business opportunities. We follow this with an article from Fragomen lawyer Jo Ann Tabing Adams discussing various short-term immigration pitfalls in Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam. Later in this issue, Harry Dixon, a lawyer from Savannah, Georgia, addresses developments in Vietnam’s anti-money laundering regime.
