China’s meteoric growth rate has intensified U.S. interest in East Asia. The potential for profit and prosperity in Asia for the U.S. and its trade partners makes this arena a hot spot for investment, as well an economic priority for the U.S. However, many risks lie beneath the surface, originating from regional political tensions and between China and the U.S. Japan, the second largest economy in the world and Asia’s most politically stable nation, must seize the leadership initiative in the region and create a more inviting environment for risk-averse U.S. businesses. Can Japan live up to this role and aid in establishing a stable economic zone in East Asia? Furthermore how can the U.S., Japan and China strengthen their trilateral relationship? This symposium explores the current status and future prospects for East Asia’s economies and implications for U.S. business strategy.
