(February 5, 2019) Beyond US-China spat: Asean's options - Kavi Chongkittavorn

 Despite all the pleasantries in Washington, DC surrounding the latest US-China trade talks over the past week, the rivalry between the world's two largest economies will not subside anytime soon. For years, US-China relations have been on top of the agenda in most of the countries in the Southeast Asian region, but never before have those ties stooped to the present level of animosity.

 

As key strategic partners of Asean, the US and China must realise that whether they cooperate or confront each other, it will have serious repercussions on the bloc. At this juncture, instead of waiting for the outcome of the talks in a passive manner, Asean should take the bull by the horns by reassessing its ties with the superpowers and identifying strategies that would go beyond this rivalry. Otherwise, Asean will become a sitting duck.
