Dialogue with Simon Tay, Chairman, Singapore Institute of International Affairs on whether crisis will divide Asia from America

Will Crisis Divide Asia from America?
Date/Time: Jul 14, 2010 / 5.45pmto7.30pm
Venue: National Library Building, the Pod

In the wake of the 2007-08 financial crisis, trends have emerged which point to Asia increasingly forging its own path, without America. In his new book, Asia Alone: The Dangerous Post-Crisis Divide from America, author Simon Tay elucidates such trends and argues that, for the benefit of both sides, US and Asia should continue to engage each other and move towards a new relationship in the post-crisis world. Tay argues that the rise of Asia and the development of closer regional bonds can occur simultaneously with continued US engagement.

-    What are the long term trends that point to division between Asia and America? How did the financial crisis accelerate them? What recent events are emblematic of a widening gap?
-    Why must such a gap be avoided, and what policy directions and changes will be necessary to avoid one?
-    What role is there for Singapore, and how might it act as an “equi-proximate” place between the US and China?

Join us in conversation with Simon Tay, together with Debra Soon, Managing Director, Channel NewsAsia.

Asia Alone: "The Dangerous Post-Crisis Divide from America" will also be on sale.
