SEA The Chessboard For US-China Tensions

US Vice President Kamala Harris is the latest Biden administration official to visit Southeast Asia this week, signalling the US’ renewed focus on the Asia-Pacific. She signed a raft of agreements to strengthen collaboration with Singapore, and promised one million Covid-19 vaccine doses to Vietnam. How much weight does US engagement carry in a region shadowed by Beijing? We discuss the geopolitical dynamics with Chong Ja Ian of the National University of Singapore.
