The 5th Asia Roundtable: Asian Space Security
The China Challenge
While there is growing recognition of the many challenges that China presents India, there is less appreciation of the implications of China’s rapidly growing space power–both civilian and military. China’s accumulation of space power reinforces Beijing’s quest for dominance in the Indo-Pacific. The Asia Round Table assessed the nature of China’s emerging space power, the responses of its neighbours like India and Japan, and the impact on regional security in Asia.
