As the world continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, mainstream coverage has tended to focus on countries which faced earlier outbreaks: China; South Korea and Japan; and Western countries straining from huge spikes of cases, such as the US, Italy and Spain. Countries in Southeast Asia, meanwhile, are uniquely placed to potentially benefit from a realignment of supply chains and trading preferences, a shift that has been occurring in recent years but has been hastened by the growing Western perception of China’s culpability for causing this pandemic and the resultant economic fallout.


第一部 東南アジアの経済復興とデューデリジェンス実施から得られる成功 (20分)
Part 1. Recovery & Ahead of the Curve in Southeast Asia – 20 minutes

While Southeast Asia will feel the impact from COVID 19 as much as the rest of the world, it could still stand to capitalise from a rush of new investment in the aftermath of the pandemic. Optimistic observers predict that Southeast Asian economies could be among the first to experience the beginning of a V-shaped recovery next year. With this in mind, investors eager to enter the region would do well to consider whether their due diligence programs are fit for purpose now to avoid a costly misstep down the road.

Part 2. A comparative view of Government Responses in Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines – 30 minutes

Government responses to the pandemic in Southeast Asia have differed greatly. Some governments responded early, while others initially tried to ignore the outbreak. We look at the government responses in Singapore and Vietnam, two countries that fall into the first group, as well as in Indonesia and the Philippines, two that fall into the latter group.
