Gen A | Flashpoints: Southeast Asia and U.S.-China CompetitionVIEW EVENT DETAILS
With Elina Noor, Director, Political-Security Affairs at the Asia Society Policy Institute
As we enter a new year and a new US administration, how will Southeast Asia continue to navigate changing power dynamics within its region?
As voiced by Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the 2019 Shangri La Dialogue, when it comes to US vs China, “don’t make us choose” has been resounding sentiment across Southeast Asia over recent years. 2021 however, is set to be a year like no other. As the world faces ongoing fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, an increasingly powerful and assertive China, and a new US presidency to boot, what then lies in the balance for an ASEAN region seeking political and economic security at the start of an uncertain year? Are the great power scales leaning one way over the other for the region?
Asia Society Australia warmly invites you to a virtual meet and greet and roundtable discussion with Elina Noor, Director, Political-Security Affairs at the Asia Society Policy Institute. Join us as we kick off Gen A for 2021 with a Southeast Asia update examining what faces the region in the new year. Elina will also share her experiences of being a senior leading woman in foreign policy and security and her career journey in the field to date.
Date: Tuesday 9 February 2021
Time: 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. AEDT
