The Indo-Pacific has emerged as the world’s economic and geopolitical center of gravity. This region has become the central theater in the competition between the United States and China to shape the course of the 21st century, while at the same time the nuclear and conventional threat posed by North Korea remains a flashpoint for major-power war. More than ever before, America’s place in the world will hinge on whether it can get the Indo-Pacific right.

Lisa Curtis, the inaugural CNAS Indo-Pacific Security Program Director was joined by Demetri Sevastopulo, U.S.-China Correspondent for the Financial Times, for a moderated discussion. CNAS CEO Richard Fontaine provided opening remarks.
