Last quote by Tommy Koh
I worry about the rise of protectionism and economic nationalism in the U.S. and in Europe. I see this as a direct threat to the prosperity and prospects of Asia. Asia has been able to make enormous progress because of the liberal economic order that the U.S., U.K. and other countries created at the end of the Second World War. And this liberal world order seems to be in jeopardy.feedback

It is not fair for you to say there is protectionism everywhere, including Asia, so what's the big deal about the U.S. turning protectionist. The trend in Asia is in the other direction. We are opening up the economies, liberalizing, integrating with one another. The trend in America and Europe is a worry, because you are going in the other way. There is a significant difference between the dominant trend in Asia – which is towards opening up the economy, liberalizing, integrating – and the trend in the West.feedback
