ROF 2021: POWER, POLITICS, AND POLICY IN A POST-COVID WORLD

Held at the beginning of each year, the Regional Outlook Forum (ROF) is ISEAS’ flagship conference. This event, now in its 24th rendition, highlights and analyses global political and economic trends that stakeholders in business and government should anticipate over the near and medium term. Speakers include distinguished scholars, businesspersons, and public intellectuals with strong international reputations. In addition to presentations from subject experts, the ROF features lively and in-depth question and answer sessions.

ROF 2021 will examine key dynamics at the regional and national level, informed by two far- reaching global events – the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the outcome of the 2020 US Presidential Election. At the national level, the impact of the COVID pandemic as well as the strategic US-China competition will intersect with underlying and unfolding domestic dynamics.

The ROF has also had to adapt to the COVID pandemic. In order to comply with current public health and safety practices, while also keeping our commitment to vigorous discussion, the event has been moved completely online and will be delivered over two half-day sessions, on the 6th and 7th of January. We look forward to your support!
