America’s Role in Asia Report Launch

The National Press Club
Conference Room
529 14th Street, NW
Washington, D.C.
9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

The Asia Foundation is pleased to announce the release of two reports under the America’s Role in Asia project, a comprehensive assessment of U.S.-Asia relations. During a series of workshops over the past year, leading American and Asian policymakers and scholars analyzed the challenges facing the U.S. in Asia and recommended policy initiatives to the U.S. administration and Congress.

Featured speakers are the America’s Role in Asia project’s Asian workshop co-chairmen: Ambassador Han Sung-joo, Chairman of the Asian Institute for Policy Studies and former Foreign Minister of South Korea (Northeast Asia), Ambassador Tommy Koh, Chairman of the Institute of Policy Studies and Ambassador-at-Large in Singapore (Southeast Asia), and Dr. C. Raja Mohan, Professor at Nanyang Technological University and author of “Impossible Allies: Nuclear India, the United States, and Global Order” (South Asia), as well as American workshop co-chairman: Ambassador J. Stapleton Roy, Vice Chairman of Kissinger Associates.

Held on a quadrennial cycle since 2000, ARA examines critical issues in U.S.-Asian relations through a series of workshops and discussions in Asia and the U.S. These activities have culminated in published papers and reports that provide American and Asian policymakers and business leaders with views and recommendations designed to address challenges and opportunities in the region. The recommendations generated out of the 2008 program will coincide with the upcoming presidential and congressional elections and will provide a unique perspective for forthcoming U.S. policy towards Asia.

We hope you will join us for the report release.

To RSVP, please respond to hstewart@asiafound-dc.org by September 8, or fax (202) 588-9409 with the following information: Name, Organization, Email, Phone.

The Asia Foundation gratefully acknowledges the American International Group and the Chevron Corporation for their generous support of this project.
