ABSTRACT

Responding to COVID-19 in Southeast Asia   [open pdf - 181KB]

From the Key Takeaways: "[1] Southeast Asia has a broad spectrum of responses to the coronavirus, from the well-prepared in Singapore to the woefully inadequate in Cambodia. [2] The U.S. should examine its current aid portfolios--especially for poorer countries--and consider whether it can give more aid to its friends in Southeast Asia. [3] The U.S. should support the most vulnerable countries, condemn political weaponization of the virus, and promote freedom of information and strong civil societies."
