Conversations on key issues: Maritime Asia

The Trump administration brings with it great uncertainties for domestic and foreign policy. It faces a changing strategic landscape in Asia with shifting security dynamics and ongoing economic integration. The Trump administration’s Asia strategy remains in flux, and Asian countries are waiting to see how the president’s team of adviser’s formulate their policy toward the region.

On March 22 to 23, the Brookings Center for East Asia Policy Studies and John L. Thornton China Center, in conjunction with the Japan Center for Economic Research, the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, and the East Asia Institute, hosted leading experts from Southeast Asia, India, Japan, and Korea, to discuss the future contours of geopolitics and economic connectivity in the Indo-Asia-Pacific.
