ASEAN-China Survey 2020 Report

In welcoming the 30th anniversary of the ASEAN-China relations next year, FPCI Research & Analysis department conducted a public survey about the ASEAN-China relationship from June until October 2020. The survey is titled “ASEAN-China Survey 2020: Assessing the Present and Envisioning the Future of ASEAN-China Relations.” The survey involved 1000 respondents from 10 ASEAN Member States and coming from five segments of the general public: government officials, academia, business community, civil society, and students.

The survey aims to capture the opinions and perspectives of the Southeast Asian public on the region’s ongoing relations with China. It also aims to assess the performance of current cooperation frameworks and seek to identify rooms for improvement. Topics covered within the survey are ranging from economic, political-security, socio-cultural aspects to strategic issues such as COVID-19 mitigation efforts, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), great power competition – the US-China rivalry, and the presently negotiated Code of Conduct of South China Sea.

The survey report was launched on 23rd of October 2020 and having H.E. Dr. Hoang Anh Tuan, Deputy Secretary-General of ASEAN for Political-Security Community, H.E. Deng Xijun, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of the People’s Republic of China to ASEAN, and Dr. Dino Patti Djalal, Founder and Chairman of Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia (FPCI) as the panelist. This panel discussion is moderated by Prof. Dewi Fortuna Anwar, Co-founder of FPCI and Research Professor at the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) on the Sekretariat FPCI YouTube channel at 14:00-15:00 (GMT+7).

We hope with the publication of the ASEAN-China Survey 2020 Report, the public will receive a better understanding of the relationship and the concerns of the ASEAN public. Policymakers are also able to see this report as the reference for future relations of ASEAN-China.
