Increasingly contested international waters threaten the security and prosperity of the United States and its Indo-Pacific allies and partners. The Coast Guard deploys a fleet that is equivalent to the world’s 15 largest navies combined, with some 38,000 active-duty forces and more than 240 cutters. Responsible for law enforcement, marine safety, and environmental protection, the Coast Guard patrols America’s 3.4 million miles of exclusive economic zone. But the Coast Guard is also working to strengthen its presence in the Indo-Pacific, training and conducting exercises with allies and partners throughout the region.

Hudson Asia-Pacific Security Chair Patrick M. Cronin will sit down with Admiral Linda L. Fagan, commandant of the United States Coast Guard, to discuss the Coast Guard’s growing role in combatting China’s peacetime confrontation operations and protecting the marine environment and vital fisheries. Hudson President and CEO John P. Walters will deliver opening remarks.
