We speak to ANTONIO A. MORALES, Ambassador, Embassy of the Republic of the Philippines; DR OOI KEE BENG, Deputy Director, Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore; BASIL C. BITAS, Associate Professor, School of Law, Singapore Management University; and Ridzwan Rahmat, Naval Analyst, IHS Jane’s.
