The Regional Outlook Forum (ROF) was established in 1998 as ISEAS – Yusof Ishak Institute's flagship public engagement initiative to enhance and broaden the understanding of Southeast Asia. Convened in early January every year, the ROF seeks to provide timely and relevant analysis of major regional developments for the year ahead. The international one-day forum covers a broad range of issues and countries. Its two primary focuses are the broad strategic regional developments and country studies.
ROF 2016 was held on 12 January 2016 at the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore.
