The Asia-Pacific is an area of critical interest for the peace and stability of the 21st century. The U.S., China and Japan are the three largest economies in the world, and the region is experiencing a vast change in its power balance as China rises and looks for opportunities to assert itself. While there is deep suspicion about the nature of the U.S.-Japan alliance in China, and in the U.S. and Japan about China’s intentions, there are many areas of common concern and potential cooperation, including the challenge of North Korea’s nuclear weapons program. Join our experts as they discuss the opportunities and challenges in the changing balance of power in the Asia-Pacific region.
