The Forum was inaugurated by Singapore’s Prime Minister, H.E. Lee Hsien Loong, with a Keynote Speech on ‘Singapore’s View of the New Powers to be in Asia’. The next four contributions are by leading academics (Prof. Dr. Wang Gungwu, Dr. Lam Peng Er), editors (Mr. Ravindra Kumar), journalists (Mr. Janadas Devan), and businessmen (Mr. Joachim Ihrcke). They assess how the rise of China and India is likely to affect the economic and political balance of power in the region. The speakers and delegates also critically engage with some of the potential domestic and international problems associated with rapid economic growth and social change. A leading editor’s (Suthichai Sae-Yoon) overview of the 1 October 2006 coup in Thailand supplements this publication.
