Deputy Secretary of State Robert B. Zoellick traveled to Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore May 2-11. He was seeking the perspectives of these countries on a variety of economic, political, and security issues, as well as presenting ideas on how we might strengthen ties in President Bush’s second term.

While in Indonesia, the Deputy Secretary traveled to Banda Aceh in order to review the efforts of the United States and many others as we transition from post-tsunami humanitarian aid to reconstruction assistance, and to consult on the best uses of additional tsunami-related assistance that we hope Congress approves in the Administration’s FY2005
