ASIAN VIEWS ON AMERICA’S ROLE IN ASIA
GUEST SPEAKER: David Arnold, President and Chief Executive Officer, The Asia Foundation
Please join David Jamison and The City Club of San Francisco for this very timely Roundtable.
As in much of the world, Asia has been transfixed by the twists and turns of the new U.S. Administration and where U.S. foreign policy toward Asia will stand going forward. With 60 percent of the world’s population and some of the world’s fastest-growing economies and thorniest security challenges, Asia’s rising strategic importance cannot be overstated. Asian leaders are deeply concerned about the way forward on complex issues in the region, including security, trade, pressing inter-Asian tensions, as well as rising powers eager to set their own agendas. According to a new report by The Asia Foundation, the United States must not shrink from its leadership role in the international order. Asian Views on America’s Role in Asia: The Future of the Rebalance is a set of strategic recommendations for the Trump Administration regarding foreign policy toward Asia, including a concise top 10. The Asia Foundation’s signature foreign policy initiative presents insights from Asian and American thought leaders.
David Arnold leads all aspects of The Asia Foundation, overseeing 18 country offices across Asia, and its San Francisco headquarters and office in Washington. Since assuming the presidency in 2011, he has spearheaded a major strategic planning process and launched new initiatives focusing on technology innovations and Asian Leadership development.
