The U.S. government’s reassertion of America as a Pacific power and President Obama’s increased focus on the Asia-Pacific region represents a shift in America’s political vision. The region presents many challenges and opportunities for America, including tension on the Korean peninsula, the rise of China, and potential regional free trade agreements, such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Kurt M. Campbell, Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, will discuss Japan and Asia’s place in the future of U.S. foreign policy.
