This article presents information that regional co-operation will be prompted by Tsunami. There are hopes that Asian countries may take advantage of the sense of urgency created by the tsunami to push ahead with greater regional cooperation. BMI View: While Asian countries have agreed to fund an tsunami early warning system, progress on other issues, such as trade liberalisation, remains unlikely. One of the reasons why the death toll from the tsunami, which hit countries along the Indian Ocean on December 26, 2005 was so high was the lack of a regional early warning system.
