SIIA Chairman Simon Tay talks about the future of US-Asia relations in this interview with Asia Society.
America could look at Asia with fear and isolate itself, he says, but it could also start to look at an engagement with Asia as a ''win-win'' situation.
Asoc. Prof. Simon Tay tells Asia Society how America can engage with Asia in these economically gloomy times. The Obama administration could stand to gain from a relationship with Asia if a non-mutually-exclusive engagement can be reached, he says.
