Questions linger about the U.S.’s approach to China and the Asia-Pacific region under the new Trump administration. Looking beyond the recent sharp rhetoric between Washington and Beijing, what substantive actions might the Trump administration take toward China, and how might Beijing respond? How will this rising tension in U.S.-China relations impact U.S. engagement with allies and partners in the region? Stimson convened a panel examining the implications and consequences of the Trump administration’s potential new approach toward China and the Asia-Pacific. The event marked the launch of a new Stimson initiative examining the impact of the evolving relationship between Washington and Beijing, and the potential strategic, trade, and security implications for the Asia-Pacific region.
WHAT: An event examining rising tensions between Washington and Beijing — as well as the potential strategic, trade, and security implications for the Asia-Pacific region.
