The 35th Williamsburg Conference from June 15 - 18, 2007 was co-hosted by the Asia Society and the Mongolian Development and Strategy Institute (MDSI). 

The conference addressed Asia’s economic difficulties and opportunities, and its crucial role in sustaining regional energy and resource security.  Delegates also discussed how the rise of China, India, and Asia more generally, impacts the strategic context in the region, and whether their growth can be sustained without massive, environmental damage. 

Among key participants were: Han Sung- Joo, President of Korea University, Kishore Mahbubani, Dean, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, Simon Tay, Chairman, Singapore Institute of International Affairs, Christopher R. Hill, Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, U.S. Department of State, and Richard C. Holbrooke, Chairman of Asia Society.
