Good morning,
Here’s your Saturday last Asia AI News.
Among the stories today are:
  • ASEAN ministers of telecommunications and IT met in Vientiane on Thursday and Friday, reconfirming intentions to work together on digital policies and initiatives.
  • Chinese AI group iFlytek disclosed that year-to-date revenue for Q1-Q3 was up 24%, while profit was up 70%.
  • U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin had a telephone call with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He on Friday to move the ‘phase one’ trade deal forward. Earlier it was reported that China would ask the U.S. to remove trade tariffs before signing, however this doesn’t seem to have been commented on by the USTR after the call.
Have a good weekend!
