Regional Outlook Forum 2023

The Regional Outlook Forum (ROF), ISEAS – Yusof Ishak Institute’s flagship event held at the beginning of each year, will be held on the 10th of January 2023, at Shangri-La Singapore, Island Ballroom.

This year’s theme “UNDERSTANDING THE DRIVERS OF CHANGE IN A DISRUPTED WORLD”, seeks to address the drivers which can disrupt and reshape not only the global economic order, but more fundamentally, long-cherished paradigms about identity, religion and political ideology. For Southeast Asia, these forces of change portend significant risks to political and economic stability, social cohesion and prospects for growth and development.

ROF2023 will explore the forces that are driving the global tectonic shifts in world affairs and discuss their implications for Southeast Asia. The far-reaching impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on global health, trade, finance and politics is still running its course, even as the fresh shocks of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on global energy and food security are exacerbating the economic and financial stress on many debt-laden countries across the globe.
