April 2020: Southeast Asian co-operation in crisis

Spring 2020 Vol.11 Ed.2

When we started working on this issue of the Bulletin, we wanted it to reflect the differences between Southeast Asian countries, and the ways in which these can affect regional co-operation. Then, just weeks before we went to print, Covid-19 hit.

As Kat Usita, OMFIF’s deputy head of research, writes, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations’ collective resilience faces its biggest challenge yet, particularly in the light of stark disparities among member states’ healthcare resources.

This situation will no doubt trigger profound change. Central banks are assessing their toolkits once more, and investors are looking at ways to ensure their portfolios will stand the test of time. This edition contains valuable insight on these topics.

As OMFIF steps up its editorial output and meetings shift to the virtual realm, we hope to be a beacon of light and knowledge amid unprecedented global upheaval.

Key contributors to this edition of The Bulletin include:

  • Chantavarn Sucharitakul, assistant governor of the Bank of Thailand;
  • Suharso Monoarfa, Indonesian national development planning minister;
  • Leila Kamdem-Fotso, partner, financial services at Mazars;
  • Daniel Tenengauzer, head of markets strategy at BNY Mellon.
