Liberalization and Integration: Southeast Asia’s Economic Prospects

Co-hosted by


Since 2000, Southeast Asia has had some of the fastest growing economies in the world. Can countries like Indonesia, The Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam avoid being ensnared in the oft-observed slowdown in growth that occurs once developing countries reach middle income levels? What are the prospects for ASEAN integration and “economic community”? How committed are the regional governments to liberalization? What are the implications of economic integration and liberalization for Southeast Asia, the United States, and other Pacific economies? How does the business community weigh these implications? Join us as our expert panel examines these issues.
