Overview

The closely-watched 8 November elections in the United States have important policy implications for Malaysia and the region. This discussion will shed light on the domestic political dynamics of the United States and unpack how a new US administration and Congress will impact bilateral and regional political, security, and defence ties in the coming years. Will there be change or continuity under a new US president? What can this region expect from the 115th sitting of Congress in January 2017?

Date: 11 November 2016
