Virtual Event | Seapower and US Strategic Competition in the Indo-Pacific

This event will premiere on this page at 10:00 a.m. EDT, Friday, April 29. Register for the event here.

The Biden administration’s Indo-Pacific Strategy argues that China is increasing “pressure on Taiwan and bullying of neighbors in the East and South China Seas.” Does the United States have sufficient seapower and defense capabilities to deter China from seizing Taiwan or undertaking other acts of aggression in the Indo-Pacific? Join Hudson Institute’s Asia-Pacific Security Chair Patrick Cronin for a timely discussion on these issues with two senior members of the House Armed Services Committee (HASC), Congressman Joe Courtney of Connecticut (CT-02) and Congressman Rob Wittman of Virginia (VA-01).
