Monocle: Asia Pac Unwrapped #16

August 2015

Anchored by Monocle’s unrivalled team of editors and correspondents, and produced out of our bureaux in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore, Asia Pac Unwrapped is an unmissable weekly briefing from the world’s most dynamic region

August 17:

As the economic clouds continue to gather over China, we’ll examine how it all came to this. We also ask whether there's a noticeable gap between casual shorts and fancier attire (according to one Melbourne entrepreneur, there is.) Then we’re in Jakarta, where diplomacy is emerging as a major factor in the struggles facing the Indonesian president. We also look at the complexities behind a new runway for Tokyo’s Narita Airport, and we inspect plans for a major urban renewal project in Sydney's second CBD.
