Prof Kishore Mahbubani, Dean of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at NUS, opined that the 21st century will undoubtedly be the Asian century and discussed why South-east Asia is the best place to watch this Asian century unfold. He also highlighted that the big question for the 21st century is whether South-east Asia will resume its traditional role of being a bridge between Chinese and Indian civilisations; and whether it will take on a new historical role of becoming a bridge between Islam and the West.
