Competing or Complementing Economic Visions? Regionalism and the Pacific Alliance, TPP, RCEP, and the AIIB

From establishing new rules for furthering trade to reassessing the future of development assistance, the roadmap for growth in the Asia-Pacific region is facing a current of sweeping change. The question is how regionalism could continue to boost the economic potential in Asia and beyond, or whether new groupings forming new rules will lead to greater political rivalries in the region and impede growth. Join us to discuss the impact of economic regionalism as a result of the Pacific Alliance, the Trans Pacific Partnership, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, with a focus on evolving relations between the Asia-Pacific and Latin America.

This event is being hosted jointly with the U.S. Japan Research Institute.
