ISCA CEO, Mr Lee Fook Chiew, was quoted in The Business Times on the question of "One year into the Trump presidency, how do you see the role of America in the global economy, and the impact, if any, for business in Asia? " This is what he has to share:
The Trump administration has been reviewing the US trade agreements, particularly those with countries that have a large trade surplus with the US, such as South Korea. This has caused some anxiety among the business community. Nevertheless, trade in Asia is likely to remain strong, as political leaders in the region have shown a propensity for keeping free trade alive. For instance, the 11 remaining members of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), in particular the Asian members, have been determined to reach a deal, even after the withdrawal of the US from the TPP talks. - Lee Fook Chiew, Chief Executive Officer, Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA)
