Malaysia’s regional security outlook: continuity amid disruption

Malaysia’s regional security outlook: continuity amid disruption. [Website]


Building on key developments throughout 2019, 2020 promised to be an exciting and perhaps transformative year for Malaysia’s defence and regional security outlook. Domestically, 2019 saw the preparation, tabling and adoption of Malaysia’s first ever Defence White Paper (DWP), which looked set to be implemented from 2020 onward. On the regional front, Malaysia’s approach toward the evolving strategic security environment was further bolstered by a new anchor – the ASEAN’s Outlook in the Indo-Pacific (AOIP) that was adopted at the 2019 ASEAN Summit in Bangkok.

Predictably, the onset and continued ravages of the COVID-19 global pandemic has significantly impacted these considerations, and more importantly, the resources notionally earmarked to pursue them. A change of political leadership has also spelled possible changes, though it remains a distant second to the impact of the pandemic.
