A Half Decade of Indo-Pacific Strategies: Assessing US Outreach to Allies and Partners

Date & Time

Nov. 8, 2023
9:00am – 10:00am ET


Online Only


As the 21 member economies of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) gather in San Francisco in November, Washington’s challenge will be to unite the leaders of the divergent economies on shared concerns on the one hand, and to strengthen ties among like-minded governments that are committed to strengthening the rule of law for a Free and Open Indo-Pacific on the other.

The APEC summit will build on US efforts to enhance partnerships and networks across the Indo-Pacific. The revival of the Australia, India, Japan, and US Quad and the signing of the Australia-UK-US agreement (AUKUS) in 2021, the hosting of the first US-ASEAN Special Summit in 2022, the US-Japan-South Korea trilateral in 2023, a regular tempo of high-level bilateral engagements, and now the APEC summit all fit within US efforts to develop an interlocking architecture in the Indo-Pacific that advances security, sustainable growth, and US objectives in the region.

Join the Wilson Center’s Asia Program for a prerecorded discussion on assessing US strategy, the current state of affairs, and its outlook.

*This event was pre-recorded on October 27th. Since the recording, the United States has issued sanctions on Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise.
