Join Hudson Institute Asia-Pacific Security Chair Patrick Cronin and Representative Rick Larsen (D-WA) for a discussion on U.S. policy in the Indo-Pacific region. In his commencement address at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, President Biden stated that “a free and open Indo-Pacific” is vital to America’s economic and national security. But how can we ensure that the region remains free and open in the face of an increasingly aggressive Beijing? How does the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard fit into our overall strategy to maintain freedom of navigation in the Taiwan Strait, South China Sea, and other waterways? How can we expand cooperation between the United States and partner nations in the region? Should the Biden administration seek to renegotiate a path forward for multilateral trade in Asia? What can Congress do to support the administration’s goals in the region and position the United States to “out-compete” China? Please join Hudson Institute for this timely discussion.
