Both the U.S. and China have set forth new policies for development and management of the Indo-Pacific region. While Chinese President Xi Jinping’s signature Belt and Road Initiative promises infrastructure development, the Trump administration’s Indo-Pacific Strategy seeks to enhance U.S. leadership in the region and integrate efforts to manage a rising China. With a U.S. national security strategy that labels China as a strategic competitor, both sides are concerned about each other's intentions in seeking dominance, and whether regional dynamics will be shaped in a manner disadvantageous to future cooperation, peace and prosperity. How will each power resist or seek to accommodate the other's national goals? What role do U.S. allies such as Japan play in defining or bridging these gaps? Please join our experts from the U.S., Japan and China as they discuss strategic competition in the Indo-Pacific.
