BOG SIGNATURE WEBINAR SERIES: Transitions and Tensions: The U.S. and China Compete for Influence and Opportunity in the Asia-Pacific

December 15 - 15 2020

The next few months may bring dramatic changes of perspective as nations and economies continue to be pummeled by the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccines become available, a new U.S. Administration takes up its mandate, and the Chinese government continues to pursue its ambitions across the Asia-Pacific region.

On December 15 at 4:30pm EST, the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) and the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) will hold a webinar discussion examining tensions in the Asia-Pacific region and the implications of a U.S. transition of power through the lens of often like-minded allies and friends of the U.S.

Program intended for AIA members & invited guests only. Not for attribution & no media.
