EVENT ADVISORY — The Future of Regional Security in Asia: Perspectives from the United States-Japan Alliance

Washington, D.C. - As Vice President Mike Pence visits Asia and the Trump administration pursues a more assertive approach toward China, the United States and its allies face a growing set of challenges. At the heart of those challenges is a set of maritime disputes between China and its neighbors in the East and South China seas. These disputes threaten regional peace and stability and could pull the United States into a conflict, as illustrated by the recent near-collision between U.S. and Chinese naval vessels in the South China Sea.

Please join the Center for American Progress for a conversation with leading experts on how the United States and Japan can cooperate in the maritime space and in the region more broadly as America enters uncharted waters with China.

Press are welcome to RSVP by following this link.
