The Pacific Century: The Future of U.S.-Asia Economic Relations
Asia Society hosts a corporate briefing with Wendy Cutler on China and other players in the Asia-Pacific and their economic future.
ASNC, Nixon Peabody and the National Center for APEC are pleased to host Wendy Cutler, Vice President and Managing Director of the Asia Society Policy Insitute’s (ASPI) Washington D.C. office and former Acting Deputy of the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative. In this high-level corporate briefing, speakers will examine varying trade and investment regimes in the Asia-Pacific, such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), China’s Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and its "One Belt, One Road" policy. How do these agreements and negotiations fit into U.S.’ own “rebalance” to Asia and China’s increasingly robust stance on the international economic stage? What are the future prospects of each? The discussion will also consider the significance of China’s recent economic slowdown and the regional impact of such slowdown on the larger Asian-Pacific economies.
