Event Details

The Asia-Pacific region is rapidly becoming a center of gravity in the global economy and the US is seeking to increase its presence in the region. In 2011 the Obama Administration announced a strategic “pivot to Asia” and in November 2012 the president visited Asia in his first foreign-policy trip after re-election. What policy opportunities and challenges does this rebalancing pose for the United States?

Michael Armacost will discuss these issues as the Obama Administration embarks on its second term.
