The Twelfth East Asia Summit was held in Pasay, Philippines on November 13–14, 2017. The East Asia Summit is an annual meeting of national leaders from the East Asian region and adjoining countries.
The heads of state and heads of government of the eighteen countries participated in the summit. 14 of the 21 attendees had attended the 2017 APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting in Đà Nẵng, Vietnam just two days prior (November 11), including host of the Summit, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.
U.S. President Donald Trump initially planned to attend the summit, having already entered the venue, the Philippine International Convention Center, but left before the group photo due to a two hour delay. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson attended in President Trump's place.
