    Default Geopolitical climate and our position...

    United we stand, divided we fall. ASEAN must stand together for the next decade, paving way for our continued prosperity. China isn't gonna seat idle, this generation of PRCs ain't no commies any more- they are hungry for success and will try to obtain it at any cost.

    The language barrier no longer poses as a problem for them, their infrastructure coming up strong, their limiting factors would be environmental issues and human rights issues. How will ASEAN work with this Red Dragon?

    Check out the Kra canal. If Singapore ever faced a real geopolitical threat, this is it.

    Interesting times!

    By the way one tenet of geopolitics or as a matter of fact, basic common sense, is that you hold the interests of your citizens above that of other countries.

    I wonder if the pap even knows this

    ASEAN is so diverse. Without a strong leader who others respect, ASEAN is going to be irrelevant

    Singapore has no natural resources and once bragged human as resource has gone old useless resource.

    China is always base on trading with its neighbours. Even British empire BE traded w China until they turned devil and evil destroy China make them poor for 150 years.

    Asians shd work with China to make sure no more BE type to damage Asians.
    Asians countries today are Internet connected and when UArseA want to stir in SCS don't be like LHL siding the devil.

    Asian belong to light brown skin homo sepain race. Angmoh stay off.

    French want to invade China but failed miserably showed China are warlord and not mess with Chinese.

    My 2 cents worth. Before the KRA ever materialises, the mega port at Malacca will probably be one of the largest threats. Parts of it will be set up to service military warships.

    Much appreciated, bro. I heard the Malacca Straits isn't deep enough nearer to the shore. Any idea if there are any plans to deepen the Straits closer to shore?

    Bigger ships use the sunda straits between java and sumatra as its deeper.
    Kra canal will never get ships to pay its exhorbitant charges to use it and save only 4 days sailing time. Suez and panama save 14 days sailing and even then, due to low oil, prices, ships are bypassing both.
    Say 50% pf ships passing malacca straits belongs to china, in one stroke, they can make all these to use another port other than sinkie. So make sure don't piss them off.

    To checkmate Singapore, will china unload their cargoes in Kuantan, travel by road to malacca and reload them there?

    Asean is a mish mash of brown people. 3 countries are muslim majority, one catholic, two communist( laos and vietnam), one dictatorship(cambodia), two budhist majority( thai and myanmar). The last one is a pain in the neck. A tax evasion haven.money laundering hub.indonesia will never become prosperous with singapore right next door to it.

    No one forced the indons to put their money here. It's up to their government to enforce against their own citizens. You ignore all the other problems inherent in the country and blame Singapore for its lack of prosperity? That makes little sense whatsoever.

    Only Thailand or Indonesian (and in time to come Vietnam) have the clout to lead ASEAN against the red dragon. Malaysia is a bloody joke and will become the next sick man of ASEAN over the Philippines. Even Indonesia took a dig at jib over the rohingya issue.

    With over half a billion people in ASEAN, it can be an economic force on its own if it gets its shit together. With 3 major religions represented, it can be a model for coexistence the world can envy.

    takes too much time with added costs. They can simply switch ports if singapore annoys them.
