    Press/Media: Expert CommentAcademic

    Description

    Covid-19 has put the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) to the test. Singapore experiences a second wave of infection, and some countries remain as virus hotspots amid concerns that they may have turned into the next Covid-19 epicentre. This issue was picked up extensively within the diplomatic community across the region. A key takeaway from the spread of Covid-19 is the need for member countries to solidify intra-Asean initiatives by strengthening result-based diplomacy. Member states should pick up this momentum to bring Asean closer to citizens.
