Synopsis: The Straits Times analyses South-east Asia's top news developments in this weekly podcast.

The Straits Times' regional correspondent Leslie Lopez chats with Money FM's Elliott Danker.

In this week's episode, the team discusses the possible effects of Malaysia’s decision to raise the ceiling price of sugar. Moreover, was stopping their chicken exports a good move?

 Indonesian authorities now hope to reach an agreement with Singapore to start exporting chickens in the next few weeks while Cambodia has ignored an appeal to exclude the Myanmar regime’s defence minister from the Asean Defence Ministers’ Meeting.
