Engaging Asia 2013

How Will the 113th Congress Address the Rebalance toward Asia?

The recognition of Asia's increasing global economic and strategic importance, the United States is rebalancing to focus more attention on the region politically, economically, and militarily. The 113th Congress takes office as this strategy is being implemented. At a time of constrained resources and competing domestic priorities, Congress will play a pivotal role in determining and executing many aspects of this rebalance as it allocates funds, provides oversight, and ratifies trade agreements.

With this in mind, The National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR) will host "Engaging Asia 2013: How Will the 113th Congress Address the Rebalance toward Asia?" on April 17, in Washington D.C. This half-day conference will provide high-level expert insight and discussion on congressional priorities that will shape the U.S. strategy in the region.

The conference will feature remarks from Congressman Rick Larsen, co-chair of the U.S.-China Working Group and member of the House Armed Services Committee, on the the role of Congress in shaping the U.S.-China relationship. The event will also include remarks from Indonesia's Ambassador Dino Patti Djalal on how Southeast Asia views the U.S. rebalancing. The program will include a panel discussion assessing the new NBR's Analysis, "Whose Pacific Century? The 113th Congress and Asia" with co-author Edward Gresser (Progressive Economy) and a panel of practitioners from Capitol Hill.

Complimentary copies of the report will be available at the event.

Registration and light breakfast will begin at 8:30 a.m.
