"Australia in ASEAN: Vision or Fantasy?"

by Hoang Thi Ha 

"To be an ASEAN member, one must agree to respect and abide by the ASEAN Charter, including the non-interference principle and decision-making by consensus. As a champion for liberal and democratic values, will Australia refrain from expressing its views on domestic politics of other ASEAN member states as it is doing today?"



"A Tale of Two Trades: Trump's Tariffs and the CPTPP"

by  Sanchita Basu Das

"That said, while Mr. Trump’s measures will cause much concern worldwide, the primary purpose is to assuage his domestic audience. It reflects the transactional way Mr. Trump perceives economics and trade agreements. Doomsday conclusions are premature at this stage. Global leaders will be very considered before they react on every move that US makes on trade. The signing of CPTPP testifies to this. It will be such deals that will transform trade and help countries to achieve their long-term objective of an innovative and prosperous society."
