EsadeGeo Weekly Asia-Pacific Briefing, July 24-30

EsadeGeo Weekly Asia-Pacific Briefing, July 24-30

A Hong Kong man has been sentenced to 9 years in prison under the city’s new National Security Law, and an outspoken billionaire in the mainland to 18 years. China has also vouched to further monitor foreign listings of Chinese companies, and has cracked down on the country’s online education sector, while declaring a deadlock in relations with the US and hosting Taliban leaders in Tianjin.

As Covid-19 wreaks havoc throughout Asia, Thailand, which is experiencing difficulties in procuring vaccine doses, has outlawed the publication of reports “spreading fear” of Covid-19. Despite this, the Olympic Games are going ahead with no evidence of their causal relationship to rising cases in Tokyo.

The Philippines have restored their military pact with the US. Taiwan seems to be beating Covid-19 again. South Korea is experiencing record economic growth. And finally, India’s democratic system is being put to the test in the wake of the Pegasus spyware scandal, used by the government on key critics.
