Topic: Southeast Asia 2012: Positive Trends, Dangerous Details
U.S.- China competition, Indonesia ‘s re-emergence and Myanmar ‘s return from the cold are among the developments that have put Southeast Asia back on the radar of investors. At the national level though, the continuing struggle for the soul of Thailand , challenges of entrenching democracy in Indonesia and coming elections in Malaysia could cause turbulence.
Manu BHASKARAN, a partner in the Washington D.C. based Centennial Group, will discuss what may follow on from these trends and issues. BHASKARAN has covered Asian economics and politics since 1982, first for the Singapore government and later as Chief Economist at SG Securities.
