What are the hot Asia-related issues this year on the Hill and where is Congress headed on them? What is Congress likely to do on the defense budget and how does it view the budget’s impact on America’s interests in Asia? Should Washington expect legislation on the China currency issue? Is the Taiwan Caucus alive and well? Congress is deeply involved in South Asia issues? How is it disposed toward funding American foreign policy initiatives in South Asia? What is support like for the war in Afghanistan? These are just a sample of the issues to be discussed by a distinguished bipartisan panel of key congressional staff members during Heritage’s annual examination of Asia policy as seen from Capitol Hill.
