My message to you is simply this, in about a year or two, the world will recover.  We need to prepare ourselves now…  Let us renew and reinforce our strong alliances with our friends in the ASEAN and in Japan.  Let us push the reset button and explore new avenues of joint cooperation.  Now more than ever, we need each other to move forward and conquer the new frontiers that will come due to the emergence of the new digital age.”
