As West Falters, Attention Turns to Asia

Aug 16, 2011
Description : 

"Economic worries in the West lead some to look ever more at Asia. But while the region is dynamic, Asian economies remain considerably interdependent with the West -- if not susceptible to the same kinds of problems then to a prolonged downturn. Asia is rising but not ready to be alone, whether in economics or security,” says Asia Society Global Council Co-Chair Simon Tay.

Simon, who is based in Singapore, is chairman of the Singapore Institute of International Affairs and author of “Asia Alone: The Dangerous Post-Crisis Divide from America.” To arrange an interview, contact the Asia Society communications department at 212-327-9271 or [email protected]
