Please join the Center for American Progress for a discussion on the future of the U.S.-Japan alliance as China rises and America’s role in Asia deepens. A cornerstone of the Asia-Pacific regional architecture, the U.S.-Japan partnership has supported peace, security, and economic growth in Asia for decades. As China grows and the political and economic dynamics in Asia evolve, the U.S.-Japan relationship is changing.
