The theme of the 35th ASEAN Roundtable is The COVID-19 Crisis: Impact on ASEAN and the Way Forward. The aim of this year’s Roundtable is to take a deeper, analytical look at the impact and implications of the current COVID-19 pandemic outbreak on ASEAN as a region. The speakers will examine, with an eye on the short- to mid-term, pressing issues facing ASEAN governments and societies alike as they attempt to recover from the crisis.
The ASEAN Roundtable is supported by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS).
