Asia 2010: The View from Capitol Hill

This video is no longer available online.

What are the challenges Congress faces on Asia policy in the lead up to the mid-term elections? What are the long-term trends in the Hill’s disposition toward Asia? How are the new Administration's Asia policies faring on the Hill? With the Chinese so much better now at lobbying, what is the current balance of forces on the Hill between China and Taiwan? Is a trade conflict with China brewing? Is the long-pending U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement viewed as an alliance issue or is the context purely trade politics. Where does India fit in discussions about the region? These are just a sample of the issues to be discussed by a distinguished bipartisan, bicameral panel of key congressional staff members as Heritage holds our annual examination of Asia policy as seen from the Hill.
