"Three here in London time now for a check of the Asian front pages. I'm delighted to say we're joined by Carlo bener senior teaching fellow in south east. Asian politics at says in London, welcome back. What do you want to start? Will be interesting to talk about some of the stallion for Japan. That's taking place in southeast Asia. When Mahatma Hamad the current prime minister of Malaysia took power, one of the things that he said, very publicly was that Malaysia and south decision general should should orient itself towards the pan which was a position that he had back in the nineteen eighties. And here we have Tommy Koh who is Singapore's ambassador at large who also has adjusted in fact that Japan should take up the position it had in the region thirty years ago when it was the region's number one trading partner and also when it was number one, foreign direct investor investment partner. What's interesting here is that age pan would argue the Japanese government argue that it has tried hard to maintain its position in the region. But also what I find interesting is that this is a we find this very often discussion of the region that either the region. In terms of its dominance of the dominance that China's trying to achieve over the region or in terms of its relationship with the United States. But in fact, both in terms of trade, and in terms of foreign direct investment the region is very is more complicated. So the e u is the largest investor in south East Asia and actually intra south east. Asian trade is the largest source of trade for the region. So here we have GO politicians if you will trying to make an argument for the how the the you know, what role Japan should play in the region when some people would argue that. In fact, there's a nice diversity of players, and even though to China may appear threatening that that it's more complicated than that much complication quite taken aback by the tone of the Singaporean embassador at lodge coining Japan to resent us in its top invest Straits Times you as number one trade Putney, he says now you'll number full. You'll also number one in foreign direct investments now you. Not you have lost so much ground in southeast Asia. I've heard more sophisticated to inferring from an undisclosed year old. Yeah. This was a workshop that was put together had a lot of ambassadors and diplomats on the who were giving speeches. And I think this is again, perhaps a little a little chiding of Japan that it let the region become so oriented toward China. But in my mind, again, this is the the China story potentially is overdone here. Of of joking supremacy won't specimen, the is better than the other. It's a sort of a very much of a bilateral pushing pudding. Whereas as you say, it's it's a need for the entire region to look see how they can growth grows a unit. Before what's really interests me is this public nostalgia for the nineteen eighties in southeast Asia right now where somehow life under Japanese economic influence was far greater than life under Chinese economic influence. And I think now we'll have a fairly a former diverse picture that this probably reflective of what's to come actually in the future. Look at something which does not pay any hate to boundaries. And that is fire and smoke and smoke and heat haze is something which really does cause enormous problems to southeast Asia. And someone has come up with the idea that if you show water, you might actually be able to solve this problem. This is a story about the Hazen Indonesia, so annually in Asia has very very large peat fires or and some cases woodfires, but mostly peat fires that produce so much smoke that it produces a regional haze in two thousand fifteen when the last round of massive fires took place sixty percent of Indonesia's carbon emissions came from those peat fires. So this is a huge of phenomenon that actually covers a lot of the region and causes huge public health problems for the region. What's interesting is that as time has pass we realized that. The the the fires in Asia are far more complex than we understood. So I think it was two years ago that a very big report came out that said that actually the vast majority of fires in Asia were from rebirthing land that had already been burnt rather than new deforestation..
