Presented in partnership with the East-West Center in Washington.

On the eve of America’s 2020 presidential elections, citizens and governments in Asia Pacific are tuned in, eager for news, information and insights on what the election results will bring for relations with their countries. The hardening rivalry between the United States and China is the single biggest feature of US policy over the past four years and of the 2020 discussions regarding Asia. Experts from across Asia express a range of responses to the costs, benefits, and durability of the hardening rivalry; and reflect on how to navigate the US-China rivalry while managing myriad other issues in bilateral relations with the United States. There is a sense in the region, perhaps as much as at home in the United States that the US faces a critical moment.

Continuing an innovative Asia Matters for America/America Matters for Asia project of tracking U.S. administrations and presidential candidates regarding the region, this EWC Seminars Live will preview the findings of a new EWC report on US Asia Policy & Debate in the 2020 Elections and Regional Responses. The report assesses key issues in US regional relations and the hopes, worries, and expectations of regional allies and friends based on dozens of interviews.
