Competition and Cooperation: Redefining Asia’s Economic Objectives

Trade relations in Asia remain uncertain in spite of the recent rapprochement between the United States and China. For countries in the region, the challenge remains to craft stable relations that would secure their economic as well as political security amid the rise of great power competition. The definition of a good trade deal continues to evolve as a result, as does what constitutes strong economic relations. Join us for a discussion on the benefits and limitations of trade agreements that meet national economic objectives, and prospects for cooperation among Northeast and Southeast Asian nations as tensions remain between Washington and Beijing.
