Eyes on Asia

Blog Facebook Twitter Linkedin Youtube RSS
 

Dear Colleagues,

This month’s issue of Eyes on Asia highlights experts’ and officials’ analyses and predictions for the future of Asia. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter assesses U.S. progress in the Asia Pacific; Tim Ferguson of Forbes sits down with former President and Chief Investment Officer of the China Investment Corporation Gao Xiqing, Managing Director of Bain & Company’s Macro Trends Group Karen Harris, and CFR Senior Fellow Brad W. Setser for a fascinating conversation on China’s recent economic policies; and former Chief of Mission to the U.S. Embassy in Myanmar Priscilla A. Clapp unpacks this critical moment for Myanmar’s new government.

Earlier this month, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) Asia program led a special delegation of experts to Taiwan and met with President Ma Ying-jeou, President-elect Tsai Ing-wen, President of the Legislative Yuan Su Jia-chyuan, and other senior officials and experts. The group discussed Taiwan’s leadership transition and observed the island’s vibrant political system firsthand. CFR Senior Fellow Yanzhong Huang and I offer some insights from the trip in our Asia Unbound blog posts.

Back in Washington, CFR Senior Fellows Sheila A. Smith, Alyssa Ayres, and I testified before Congress on the “rebalance to Asia” and how the United States can foster stronger economic relations with India. CFR Senior Fellow Scott A. Snyder, in a CFR Expert Brief, explores whether North Korean provocations will push Beijing to favor a unified Korean peninsula under Seoul’s leadership. Here in New York City, I spoke with David Shambaugh about his new book, China’s Future, and two other authors as part of my new books on Asia podcast series.

Best wishes,

 EE-sig

Expert Brief: Will China Change Its North Korea Policy?

Expert Brief: Will China Change Its North Korea Policy?

North Korea’s recent nuclear test and long-range missile launch have tested China’s support for the regime. CFR Senior Fellow Scott A. Snyder argues that China increasingly resents Pyongyang’s willingness to take Beijing’s support for granted and put Chinese strategic interests at risk. A frank conversation between China and the United States about the future of the Korean peninsula, Snyder writes, could pave the way for greater cooperation to stymie North Korean nuclear ambitions.
