01 Jul The Indo-Pacific Economic Framework is launched — sort of
By Simon Tay
For The Washington Examiner
Speaking candidly at a recent Washington, D.C., conference, Professor Simon Tay, Chairman of the SIIA, warned the U.S. that for Singapore and the nations of ASEAN, the idea of “ friend shoring ” and explicit bans on Chinese goods and services would not fly. Professor Tay specifically pointed to the hot spot of technology competition (including semiconductor chips) and the role of export controls and investment limitations such as those bruiting about the U.S. Congress.
“The Indo-Pacific Economic Framework is launched — sort of” was published in Restoring America to highlight how a new partnership with Pacific countries could strengthen the position of the United States, both economically and militarily, in the region.
