About the Regional Outlook Forum

The Regional Outlook Forum (ROF), ISEAS – Yusof Ishak Institute’s flagship event held at the beginning of each year, will be held on the 6th and 7th of January 2022.

This year’s theme “REGIONAL DISRUPTIONS AMIDST GLOBAL RECOVERY”, reflects expectations of a continuing global recovery but with uneven performance across countries in the region driven by differences in Covid-19 vaccination rollout and continuing struggles to control the new Delta variant.
