The Australian Labor Party’s recent return to power and New Zealand Labour’s continued successes has reignited the flames of hope for Social Democracy in the Asia- Pacific region. However the rest of Asia are less fortunate and are seeing kakistocrats, kleptocrats and autocrats using their ill begotten wealth to buy and occupy the electoral and democratic landscape in their increasingly often successful bid to return to power and their wicked ways.

Beyond the death toll and casualties, Putin’s war on the Ukrainian people has triggered socio-economic chain reactions globally. Skyrocketing food and energy prices as well as the ensuing humanitarian crisis are also affecting millions of lives way beyond Ukraine. Looming dark clouds of similar geopolitical transgressions sparking around the region can neither be de ruled out nor ignored.

We look forward to seeing you in Kuala Lumpur.
