RSIS Webinar Series on Post-Pandemic Multilateralism and Diplomacy
23 February 2021
The decrease in cross-border movement has been one immediate impact of COVID-19, hitting some sectors hard while boosting others. This gives rise to new fundamental questions about the future of multilateralism and trade. This panel will explore questions such as: Has the COVID-19 pandemic harmed Southeast Asian regionalism and ASEAN centrality or showed once more the value of institutionalised regional cooperation? How has COVID-19 impacted the geo-economics in the Indo-Pacific, and what has been its impact on specific initiatives, such as the BRI? How has the pandemic and rising competition changed regional trade, economic cooperation and interdependence?
The panellists will present on the following topics:
1. ” The Impact of COVID-19 on ASEAN and ASEAN-led Regional Institutions” by Dr Alica Kizekova
2. ” The Impact of COVID-19 on Regional Geo-Economics and The BRI” by Ms Alyssa Leng
3. ” The Future of Regional Trade in a Post-Pandemic World” by Dr Lee Su-Hyun
