China’s heavy investments in U.S. Treasury notes have created the largest current account deficit in U.S. history. While allowing the United States to meet its debt obligations, such heavy dependence on China’s continued economic growth has created a risk of over-exposure. Viable alternatives to China may be offered by Japan, demonstrating resurgent growth in the world’s second largest economy, and India, the world’s largest democracy, which boasts a favorable regulatory environment. This symposium explores the opportunities–and challenges–facing American companies looking to invest and do business in Asia. Our distinguished panel of experts will also discuss the implications of America’s business portfolio diversification for the rest of Asia.
