Event description

Description

What is CPTPP? How will the recent changes in the U.S.'s trade policy influence trans-Pacific trade? What will China's One Belt One Road initiative bring to the Asia Pacific economy? Join us for a discussion on the future of the Asia Pacific economy and trans-Pacific trade with our policy expert -- Mr Stewart M. Patrick.

Mr. Patrick will speak to what the implications are or could be of the U.S.’s non-participation in the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP, formerly known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP), especially as China proceeds to deepen trade and economic engagement around the world through the Belt and Road Initiative and Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP). In addition, his comments will touch on what the American domestic foundations are for the re-engagement of Asia in a context of rising sovereigntism, insularity, and protectionism in the United States.
