Professor Jomo K Sundaram, assistant secretary-general on economic development at the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, will deliver the second Sir Patrick Gillam Lecture at LSE on Monday 28 November.
East Asian regional economic cooperation was first conceived as necessarily being under Japanese leadership. The 1990s, however, saw Japanese economic stagnation and China's rapid ascendance. US and Japanese concerns about China's resurgence suggest the likelihood of continued innovation in regional economic cooperation contrary to the expectations of textbooks and most pundits. Professor Sundaram will explore the issues raised.
Howard Davies, director of LSE, will chair this event, which was previously advertised as Prospects for Regional Integration in East Asia.
Whither the East Asian Flying Geese? Regional Integration and Other Options? is on Monday 28 November at 6.30pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all but a ticket is required. Click here for details on how to request a ticket
