The State of Southeast Asia: 2023 Survey Report

 

The State of Southeast Asia 2023 Survey conducted by the ASEAN Studies Centre at ISEAS – Yusof Ishak Institute reveal that Southeast Asia’s top preoccupations are with recessionary pressures, potential military tensions, and a ‘slow and ineffective’ ASEAN. China continues to be regarded as the most influential economic and political power in the region and the US has sharpened its edge over China in the event of a forced choice while Japan remains its most trusted major power.

The State of Southeast Asia: 2022 Survey Report

 


The State of Southeast Asia 2022 Survey conducted by the ASEAN Studies Centre at ISEAS – Yusof Ishak Institute highlighted the pandemic’s threat to health, and a ‘slow and ineffective’ ASEAN as the top challenge and concern facing the region. The Myanmar crisis is seen as putting ASEAN’s centrality and unity to the test.
