From Morning Report, 7:44 am on 4 November 2019

Sheep placenta cream - ever heard of it?

The Thai Prime Minister has and referenced it while talking with Jacinda Ardern about their respective countries working more closely together on high value agricultural goods.

Trade and regional security will occupy the ASEAN leaders, and dialogue partners including New Zealand, as they head back to the East Asia Summit meeting later today.

Ms Ardern is spending one night on Bangkok for the Summit which has become the main game in town after the cancellation of APEC in Chile due to anti-government protests.

RNZ's political editor, Jane Patterson, is there, and filed this report.
