A WEF panel on "Asian Geopolitical Outlooks" without at least 1 person representing the Chinese perspective is a joke.

Kang Kyung-Wha is in every video I watch about Asia. She is a hardworking person.

Sri Lanka's minister seems to see a broader picture. What he says makes lot of sense; Ensuring the oceans of the region wont become battle grounds of various power bases.

I see it more as a Chinese geopolitical outlook rather than an Asian one

A lot of ctries has cast suspicions on China OBOR initiative, but I think it is a great opportunity to develop the poorer nations.US, Japan and others would be motivated to come up with their own investment plans in such region too .Fewer wars could be prevented if big, powerful nations were involved in mega investment projects.It is actually a blessing for all.More economic growth globally.

Geopolitik dan geo ekonomi Asean cukup menjanjikan sekalipun belum belum berdaya saing tinggi dan belum inovasi tinggi. Maka perlu sentuhan koki yang super lezat dan unik untuk memasaknya serta mengorengnya. Agar masyarakat Asean makin makmur, sejahtra, adil dan berkualitas hidup yang layak.

WTO is rule based..! And its not just the lips service and the punching sand bag for the purpose of one individual country seeking nationalistic interest that simply replaced with their 301..!!
Who is the pole keeper for free trade?

It sounded like Kuok is a spokesperson for Vietnam and United States which her think-tank represented. And she reads and listens only to extreme western based media and rhetorics.. Let the Vietnamese government talk to the Chinese government and they are doing so even without your double standard and bias comments.

And please read up the history of South China sea before making critical remarks. Shame on you for not doing so..!

Reference:
1) By Bill Hayton, "The South China sea".

2) By John Pilger, "The coming war on China".


This panel discussion is also NOT impartial.. Why is the Japanese Foreign Minister present and NOT the Chinese Foreign Minister...??? How can you not hear the Chinese side of their story..??!!
A GREAT opportunity LOST due to your geopolitical immaturity and oversight.. thus turning it into a Starbucks chit chat session...

I believe if the Indo-pacific strategy does in fact materialize, it would completely change the geopolitics and geo-economy of the whole Asia-pacific region and positively so. Hoping this strategy becomes a reality soon.

Fluffy discussion. Very little content, a lot of cliches. Not worth my time.

As a lady from thailand i would like to say that any development by communist china is an undercut of democracy and i prefer not having any project from communism. I cannot trust totalitarian leadership.

The IISS lady Kuok seems to be a useless American parrot. Singapore is sucking from the poisonous rear teats of the warmongering, lawless US rogue state. The biggest treat comes from the US not China. The US have killed and displaced tens of millions including 3 million Vietnamese and poisoned millions more with the chemical weapon Agent Orange. This damn Singaporean is a pox on ASEAN.

Actually there is less geopolitics and more economics in Asean and East Asia. China has money and basically wins over geopolitics.

Reagan's motto peace thru strength is the basic summary of geopolitics in Asia, thus China is in a vastly superior position.

Democratic nations all around the world should join hands in promoting democracy way of life including trading. Communism is not a better choice but a threat to all democratic nations.

Since communist china starts having some money, its major actions are strategically invest in nations around regardless of its 1.4 billion people living conditions. Its actions indicate a thrust for power as dictatorship are all about.
