Washington, D.C. — The Asia-Pacific region presents tremendous opportunities for the United States to work with partners in Asia to strengthen the U.S. economy, uphold regional security, and solve regional and global challenges. But growing challenges—from tensions with North Korea to the rise of China and Southeast Asia’s backsliding democracy—threaten those opportunities. The current specter of conflict with North Korea, in particular, is endangering regional peace in ways unseen in years.
As President Donald Trump prepares for his first trip to Asia as president, these challenges, among many others, will loom large. Please join the Center for American Progress Action Fund on Thursday, November 2, for a speech by U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) from 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on U.S. policy in the Asia-Pacific region. The speech will be followed by a panel discussion of U.S. policy in the region and what to expect from President Trump’s trip.
