The time for Asia is now. For years, the world’s economic centre has been pulling away from the West. While some might argue who will take America’s place as the engine of the world economy, the facts are clear and undisputed. According to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Asia is and will continue to be the world’s fastest-growing region, with China and India leading the charge. By 2050, these two countries will become the world’s largest economies. The world’s economic centre will be in Asia. A new world order is taking shape, definitely economically but potentially politically as well.

In this re-assignment of global leadership, the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKYSPP), part of the National University of Singapore, will continue to inspire, improve lives, and take central position in the conversation to transform Asia. We do this by working hard on two planks: pursuing academic and intellectual excellence, and crafting lessons for meaningful public policy-making.

Professor Kishore Mahbubani, the school’s Founding Dean, has produced outstanding results in this regard. In his years as Dean since the School was founded in 2004, LKYSPP has flourished to become one of the world’s most respected schools of public policy.

Our valuable partnerships have resulted in productive collaborations with other leading global institutions. Our active and diverse faculty contribute op-ed articles to widely-read publications. Governments in Asia look to us for advice. In 2017, we co-organised the prestigious International Conference on Public Policy, attended by more than 1,300 participants from over 70 countries.
