Asia Pacific Forecast 2014

  • Wednesday, Jan 29, 2014
  • What new challenges and opportunities will the United States face in the Asia Pacific region in the year ahead? How will China seek to expand its influence? What should we expect from North Korea? Will Abenomics work? What impact will political transitions in India and Southeast Asia have on regional dynamics? Will the Trans-Pacific Partnership be completed?

    John Bussey of The Wall Street Journal and Fred Hiatt of The Washington Post will quiz CSIS experts and the audience on political, security, and economic developments across Asia in 2014. 

    The discussion will conclude with a luncheon roundtable with ambassadors from the region.
