ABOUT THE WEBINAR Geopolitical trends in both regional and international politics in the past decade have been dominated by USA-China strategic competition, which has affected how countries interact with each other as both powers vie for dominance in Asia.

In the midst of this, Russia has invaded Ukraine, sparking international condemnation. While it may be considered as an issue that is too far from home, Singapore has taken a decisive stance and imposed economic sanctions on Russia.

In the face of these, what are their implications on the ASEAN region and what can ASEAN do? Join us as we examine more about geopolitical trends in trade and foreign policy as well as the implications of the Russia-Ukraine situation.
