We are very sad to inform you that our former Council Secretary, Dr Eric Teo, has passed away after a bout of illness.
Dr Eric Teo was an outstanding scholar on ASEAN and regional affairs, specializing in political and economic risks analysis and the political economy of East Asian countries, and was an expert on Europeand especially France. He regularly offered analysis and commentaries on the Asian political economy to various journals, as well as to the regional and international media. A former diplomat, Dr Teo had also written extensively for numerous local and international academic publications.
As SIIA Council Secretary for six years, Eric had often shared his views and analysis of regional events at SIIA events, and represented the SIIA ably at various international conferences and seminars.
Eric’s passing is a great loss to the SIIA and we share in his family’s grief in losing a son and a brother.
