Event description

Description

Guest speaker: Terry McCarthy, President and CEO of Los Angeles World Affairs Council

For 70 years the United States has underwritten the peaceful development of Asia, allowing unprecedented wealth creation and simultaneously the apparently unstoppable democratization of the region. Today that virtuous circle seems threatened. The meteoric rise of China under a rigid single-party authoritarian system is challenging the US model of liberalization, and is pulling other countries in its wake.

This session will look at what that means both for American policy-makers and for American businesses operating in Asia. McCarthy will start with an overview of Asia’s economic and political development and the evolving role of US policy in the region. He will also to look at the region from China’s perspective, channeling Xi Jinping and the narrative he tells his own people. Finally, a detailed look into five countries which include: Korea, Japan, India, the Philippines, and Thailand– and examine how they are and will be affected by the battle for ideas between the US and China.
