About This Event

China and Russia’s rising maritime aggression and military growth could threaten America’s interests, alliances, and the global order within the next decade. To maintain free and open seas, the United States Navy’s Tri-Service Maritime Strategy, known as Advantage at Sea, strives to modernize and innovate to meet these threats—but will it be enough, and in time, for America to keep up? Director of Navy Strategy Bruce Stubbs joins Council President’s Club and leadership members to discuss global security trends, challenges at sea, and how the US Navy is transforming for the future.
