The ANU Crawford Leadership Forum presents the 'Big Picture Series: Australia in a COVID-19 world.

Asia and COVID-19

Asia’s rise in recent decades has changed the world and shifted economic, geo-political and even cultural power eastward. Now Asian governments and societies are grappling with the immense damage caused by COVID-19.

  • How will Asia recover? Can we still talk of an “Asian Century”?
  • How will the longer-term development and economic growth of poorer Asian countries be affected?
  • What kind of political change might the pandemic drive in Asia and how will the pandemic affect geo-political competition for power and influence?
  • Has Asian regionalism played any significant role in coordinating responses to the pandemic?
  • And how have Asian societies adapted to the immense strains caused by COVID-19?

Join us for a discussion with these eminent experts from Asia on how the pandemic is changing their region.
