Description
New Developments in North East Asia

Oxford and Cambridge Society Fireside Chat with His Excellency the Ambassador of Japan, Mr Kenji Shinoda and Former Minister Rear Admiral Mr Lui Tuck Yew

How can Singapore navigate the South China Sea, and how do we deal with the new emerging Chinese superpower. What reverberations will be felt from North Korea’s recent nuclear tests? What role will an America bent on putting “America First” play in this context? And Russia? What does Japan intend to do? And how should Singapore fit in? Will we be able to continue, punching well above our weight? Or should we quieten down, and see where the wind blows? Join us for a fireside chat with His Excellency the Ambassador of Japan, Mr Kenji Shinoda and former Minister Rear Admiral Mr Lui Tuck Yew on the topic of “New Developments in North East Asia”.
