Item description for Asia and Europe (Essays and Speeches by Tommy Koh) by Tommy T. B. Koh, Lay Hwee Yeo, Asad Latif & Asad Latif...

Professor Tommy Koh, a distinguished and well-respected diplomat, is Singapore's foremost "Americanist", having spent about two decades in America, serving as Singapore's Permanent Representative to the United Nations and Ambassador to the United States. This collection of his essays and speeches was written and delivered in his capacity as the Executive Director of ASEF. It contains his thoughts on the three pillars of Asia-Europe relations: politics, economics, and civil society. The essays and speeches reveal his assessment of some of the key trends shaping the emerging world and some crucial events affecting the transformation of Asia and Europe. Koh points to synergies between the two continents but does not hesitate to note differences in outlook which have to be recognized and respected.

Reviews - What do customers think about Asia and Europe (Essays and Speeches by Tommy Koh)?

was this just a talkfest?  Nov 3, 2006
The book centres around ASEM - Asia-Europe Meeting. Where here Asia really means East Asia. ASEM began in 1996, and involves regular meetings to discuss policies; mostly about trade issues. But with development in Asia being another major topic. The book relates how within a year of getting started, the financial crises of 1997, the Asians became preoccupied with managing their way out of the recession. Leaving the Europeans to dominate ASEM.

Mostly, a cynic might regard ASEM as a fancy talkfest. Many meetings, seminars and conferences were financed and convened under its rubric. Mostly about dialog between the parties. Some benefit was gotten by informally involving NGOs, especially those from Asia, in parallel meetings. This encouraged the development of civil societies, giving operational space to the NGOs and, hopefully, having several Asian governments see their NGOs as providing useful support.
