Singapore Prime Minister: I feel very sorry for the situation which Hong Kong is in
I feel very sorry for the situation which Hong Kong is in because they are city with a lot of talent, a lot of Enterprise other potential there right on the doorstep of China and China has really be able then, to grow into come overcome. Many economic blogspot change, which is not easy for the population to get used to, and I also issues within Hong Kong, which are quite fundamental social issues that housing fundamentally, it’s a question hope for the future for the young people and if these are not radically address. I think it is very difficult to overcome the problems. Are you surprised that the Chinese government has not our shutdown the protest Hong Kong using Force? No, I don’t think so. I think that Chinese government – I don’t think the Chinese government, caused this to happen. I think that they are now confronted with this frog in their hands and what do I do with it problem? But if I do the wrong thing and they make things a lot worse and I think I’m very conscious of that. They hope that the Hong Kong is and started out about the chief executive has a very difficult task: Singapore situation, you are very close to China, your economies increasingly influenced by China and yet you’ve been a very staunch American Airline. How difficult is this trade war between the United States and China? For you? We see that as a problem for us, but in practice problem for the world. All of us have depended on stable us, China, relations and increasingly closed us. China, economic cooperation, Investments, trade as well as flows of talent and ideas, and the way things are going now that benign trend is being disrupted and perhaps even turned around, and I think that’s bad for the world he met with president. Did you convey to him the fear that I hear at least make sure that America is withdrawing the by rejecting the trans-pacific partnership? It’S eating the field to China and does he does he get that America is withdrawing address of deception, because America is engaging China very? Very actively, I mean, is not a happy engagement right now, but there’s not pulling out from the field. I think what we would like to see in Asia is the United engage activity not only with China, but was also the other Asian countries in Southeast Asia and East Asia, even for that matter, and South Asia and cooperatively constructively to enabled to be to have a Normal things to do with China at the same time is there between ohmic links and other links with the United States, and if you are stranded, Elations are not stable and not amicable is much harder for all of us to do that, we will be pressured very Hard to choose sides and it’ll be a very painful time for most countries in Asia. If they have to choose between America and China, what will they do because all of your allies and many of your partner’s? So you look at Japan, Korea, Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, Tylenol treaty allies, all of them have China as their biggest partner Austin to choose and say. I therefore must cut off my links with my biggest trading partner. I think you would put them in a very difficult position: Singapore’s close partner of the United States, but we also have our biggest trading links with China, bigger than the United States. What do you think the world of technology is going to look like if the United States continues on the fact that Trump Administration, which is in a Banning Huawei, fearing that there is going to be? You know the Chinese technology? We will have within it? A kind of Espionage component will you end up with a bipolar word to technology systems that direction? I think if you take this attitude cannot stop f*** with Wally, because it says that, basically, you don’t trust them, and you have reason to doubt whether everything can be taken at face value by the same token, unable to trust you and they asked. Why do we allow your operating systems, your chips, your technology, to ruin our economy? We become Hostage to you. You must end up bifurcated on across a wide range of things in terms of technology in terms of systems and the rest of us getting to handphones is the least of our problems. Can you, presumably you will again be asked to choose. You have to choose an American supply chain, technologically or Chinese supply chain. What is what is a response plan if you look at the responses and partners have agreed to cooperate with the Americans, others have concluded that this is a very big ass. The pleasure AP1. Thank you.
