Beyond Secretary Clinton's Asia Trip: First Glimpse of the Obama Administration's New Asia Policy

During Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's Asia Society speech on February 13th and her recent official Asia trip, she created a tremendous amount of goodwill in the countries visited. Now comes the tough part. As the new State Department Asia team settles in, how can Secretary Clinton and the Obama administration translate the goodwill into policy? Drawing on government experience and policy expertise, our speakers discuss the priority issues and preferred approaches that will characterize the Obama administration's policy towards North Korea, South Korea, China, and Japan. Please join us for a discussion of these and other relevant issues. Featuring: L. Gordon Flake, Executive Director, Mansfield Foundation John S.

Thornton China Center, Brookings Institution; Former Senior Director, Asian Affairs, National Security Council Joel Wit, Senior Research Fellow, Weatherhead East Asian Institute, Columbia University In Conversation With Michael G.
