Asia-Pacific Forecast 2013

  • Tuesday, Jan 29, 2013
  • What new challenges and opportunities will the United States face in the Asia-Pacific region in the year ahead? Will China embark on a new charm offensive in Southeast Asia to counter the pivot? How will Japan manage its relations with its neighbors? Can the Trans Pacific Partnership be completed within the year? How will U.S.-India relations change with the United States' withdrawal from Afghanistan? Is North Korea on the path to nuclear tests, dialogue, or both? Three of the nation's leading foreign affairs and economic correspondents join the CSIS Asia scholars to look at the year ahead with input from the audience through multimedia technology.
