A Foreign Affair discussion on Southeast Asia

By Huong Le Thu

Southeast Asia has quickly become the region hardest hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, with many countries that successfully held off the pandemic last year now suffering from the spread of the Delta variant. The domestic social, economic and political ramifications could be significant, and they come at a time when the region is of growing geopolitical significance to the US and China. Guests: Emma Connors, Southeast Asia correspondent for the Australian Financial Review; Dr Huong Le Thu, senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) and a non-resident fellow with the Southeast Asia Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and Michael Wesley, Deputy Vice Chancellor, International, at the University of Melbourne.
