Asia Society Japan Center Policy Conference: Competing Visions for the Future of Asia

Competing Vision Title Pix

“Competing Visions for the Future of Asia”
There are two competing visions for the future of Asia, China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the west’s Free and Open Indo-Pacific (FOIP). On one level, the competition between BRI and FOIP is a geopolitical rivalry. At a deeper level, it is two competitions, one between capitalism vs socialism, and another between democratic vs. authoritarian rule. The conference will explore these issues in depth, with experts from many countries seeking an approach that promotes peace and prosperity of the entire region.

Keynote: Danny Russel (ASPI)
Mr. Russel will be joining us following his notable publication on BRI in June. Based on his long years as a diplomat, Special Assistant to President Obama and National Security Council (NSC) Senior Director for Asian Affairs, it should provide us with insights and analysis from an expert.

Panel Discussions:
Robert Feldman will lead the economic discussion with Mr.Winston Ma (High-tech investor, Author, Adjunct professor), Prof. Heather A. Montgomery (ICU) and Prof. Masaya Sakuragawa (Keio University)

Glen S. Fukushima will focus on regional security issues of the competing visions with Mr. Ronald Chan (Chartwell Capital Limited), Danny Russel (ASPI) and Mr. Hitoshi Tanaka (JCIE Senior Fellow).
