Symposium: China's Rise and the US-Japan Alliance

Amidst an escalating trade war with the United States, China’s influence continues to grow across the Asia-Pacific. Questions about China’s goals, strategies, and long-term prospects dominate global conversations and steadily put pressure on the United States and its key regional allies, Japan and South Korea. Each country must grapple with their individual interests in the region and determine how they might cooperate to compete with China’s rise. Join the Council for a discussion with regional experts to examine the opportunities and challenges the United States, Japan, and South Korea will face as their trilateral relationship is tested.

This half-day symposium is made possible with the generous support of the Consulate General of Japan in Chicago. Breakfast and lunch are included.
