More and more these days, Washington and Beijing often view their interactions in Southeast Asia through a competitive lens, leading to a potentially harmful dynamic in the region. Recognizing this reality, the Center for American Progress and the China Institutes for Contemporary International Relations, or CICIR, engaged in a two-year joint research project to unearth areas of possible U.S.-China cooperation in Southeast Asia, which included joint research trips to Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Singapore, and Vietnam.
Please join us as we release the product of this collaboration, our research report titled “Recalibrating U.S.-China Relations in Southeast Asia.” Vikram Singh, CAP’s Vice President for National Security and International Policy, and Yuan Peng, CICIR’s Vice President, will delve into the project’s findings and recommendations to cut through competition and offer new areas of cooperation in Southeast Asia.
