Rappler Talk: Malcolm Cook on Duterte’s foreign policy in 2021

Bookmark this page to watch the interview on Saturday afternoon, January 9!

The world waits with bated breath what 2021 will bring to the table, especially coming from the year that was 2020.

In the Philippines, the new year means President Rodrigo Duterte will soon enter his last year in office, which would be marked with his government's struggling response to the coronavirus pandemic.

On Saturday, January 9, Rappler editor-at-large Marites Vitug speaks to analyst Malcolm Cook on the issues that will define Duterte's foreign policy in 2021.

With a new United States president and a global race for vaccines, Duterte's last year as Philippine president will surely be eventful even in the international arena.

Cook is a senior fellow at the regional strategic and political studies program of the ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute in Singapore. He oversees the ISEAS Philippines Project and researches on Philippine foreign policy and the country's relations with US and China.

Prior to joining the institute, he served as dean of the School of International Studies at Flinders University of South Australia and the East Asia program director at the Lowy Institute.

How will Duterte's stance on key foreign issues affect the country's relations with important players? Catch the interview on Saturday, January 9! – Rappler.com
