U.S. Economic Strategy in Asia in the Trump Era: From Pivot to About-Face
October 3, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT
In 2016, Washington’s Center for Strategic and International Studies began preparation of a brief for the next U.S. Administration on what the American strategy should be. President Obama talked about a “Pivot to Asia” and championed the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). With incoming President Trump’s announcement that the USA would be withdrawing from TPP negotiations, that strategy needed an update. Join the co-author of the CSIS report “Reinvigorating U.S. Economic Strategy in the Asia Pacific: Recommendations for the Incoming Administration”, Scott Miller, as he brings us up to date on the U.S. economic agenda in Asia, and how Congress is looking at trade negotiations in the post-TPP era.
Organized by the Munk School of Global Affairs.
