On November 14, Odgers Berndtson Singapore brought business executives from a variety of industries together at ONE°15 Marina Club in Sentosa Cove to discuss the very timely topic of the implications for Southeast Asia of the outcome of the recent US presidential election.

Steve Wilford, a Senior Partner for Asia-Pacific in Control Risks’ Global Risk Analysis team, brought his deep knowledge and experience to bear in discussing the impact the Trump Presidency could have on the region. Trump’s hostility towards global trade and interest in pulling back from regional and bilateral security alliances is predicted to have a variety of implications for countries, businesses and investors in Southeast Asia. But it’s not all doom and gloom—Steve pointed out some reasons to be optimistic about the future of doing business in the region, which continues to offer a lot of opportunity and may be the last bastion of the globalisation movement.

Steve spread his presentation in the following key topics:

  • Trump on trade
  • Trump on security alliances
  • Country-specific implications of the Trump victory
