In conversation: Chan Heng Chee



30 May 2013 09:58

Last week Lowy Institute Executive Director Michael Fullilove caught up with one of the Institute's newest board members, Ambassador Chan Heng Chee. Ambassador Chan is the first member of the Board from Asia and was Singapore's Ambassador to the US from 1996 to 2012.

In this short video Ambassador Chan has some interesting observations on the ability of 'middle powers' to influence multilateral decision-making (1:06), citing Australia's success as APEC as an example (1:50). Also insightful are the Ambassadors observations on how Singapore has changed politically over recent years (2:40): 'I'm struck by how open the place has become'.
