Magazine Description

In this issue

As the global market is volatile, countries will need to adapt to certain direct and indirect economic policies to protect their citizens. Such policies, which may include Isolationism, will have extreme reactions on either end of the spectrum by its citizens and the rest of the world. Such reactions will affect the world’s security as it is threatened by a fear of terrorism, major disease outbreaks and other menaces. According to the author, many countries, especially smaller countries like Singapore, will have to rely on regional institutions to improve cooperation between countries and be part of a collective effort to provide a more stable economic market and security landscape. The author feels that Singapore should strengthen the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) through public engagements to gain public support and capability transformation to sustain the country, especially in dealing with threats, external or otherwise. The author concludes that even as the world faces more complex security challenges in the coming years, Singapore will be well-poised to meet these challenges if it can strengthen its security agencies and national unity while supporting multilateral institutions and their stabilising effects against belligerent states and growing terrorist threats.
