4th ASEAN and Asia Forum

Economy, Energy and Environment
 
Date/Time: Aug 04, 2011 / 9 am
Venue: Capella Singapore, Sentosa Island, The Ballroom
 

As Asia recovers from the global financial crisis, the patterns and nature of global and regional integration are changing. As Asia adapts to a new reality, it faces different issues and challenges which are arising from recent unexpected developments in the region and abroad.

Such challenges include the recent Japan earthquake and tsunami, which not only caused significant damage to the Japanese economy, but also had repercussions for trade and supply networks throughout Asia. The subsequent nuclear crisis also raised a crucial question about Asia’s energy security: how will Asian countries balance the urgent need for cheap energy with the time needed to implement effective safety standards?

ASEAN remains a complex and diverse community, and there are challenges facing continued ASEAN integration and cooperation. ASEAN countries continue to depend on larger Asian economies and ongoing intra-regional disputes further complicate cooperation efforts. As ASEAN and Asia find themselves taking on new roles in the coming decade, they must consider both the existing problems facing the region and the emerging issues which could influence trade growth, policy implementation and global cooperation.

It is with these issues in mind that the 4th ASEAN and Asia Forum will convene a dialogue of leading thinkers. They will share insights and perspectives on the region’s political economy, analyze the evolving global context, and identify opportunities for the future of ASEAN and Asia.
