Attend a talk at Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington DC, given by Humphrey Hawksley, author of the recently published book, Asian Waters: The Struggle Over the South China Sea and the Strategy of Chinese Expansion
The photo in the presentation is of a Vietnamese fisherman. I have commented on the actual prelaw on the Special Economic Zone which erodes once more the trust of Vietnamese to its leaders and ignites anger in the whole country. China’s ambition does not only trouble the waters but also create the instability and upset on land in the neighbouring countries.
Photo also with Mr Murray Hiebert, senior associate and specialist at CSIS on Southeast Asia. Thank you Murray and friends for the meeting and advice.
