Following last year’s stunning election results in Malaysia and subsequently testy bilateral ties, all eyes will be on five major elections set to take place across the region in 2019. A shock election result in Australia, India, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines – Singapore’s major trading partners representing about 19 per cent of total exports – could pose risks to businesses with significant exposure to these markets.
