Asia 2007: The View from Capitol Hill

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

What challenges will the new Congress face in Asia, and how will it weigh its own involvement?  How is Congress likely to react to the Administration's new approach to North Korea?  What are the security implications of the Chinese anti-satellite testing; was the administration response sufficient?  What role will the United States play in managing, hedging against the rise of China?  What role will Congress play in determining U.S.-China policy?  What are the prospects for a U.S.-Taiwan FTA agreement or other pending FTAs?  What will be the next steps in building the U.S.-India partnership?  What legislative actions are under consideration to help reverse the Taliban resurgence in Afghanistan and to fine-tune U.S. relations with Pakistan? 

Join us as a bipartisan, bicameral panel of congressional staff members gives us their view of Asia from the halls of Congress.
