In Asia’s Quest for Balance: China’s Rise and Balancing in the Indo-Pacific, a new book from Heritage Foundation Research Fellow Jeff M. Smith, leading author-experts from Australia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam take a deep dive into China’s evolving relationships with its neighbors at a time the U.S.- China rivalry is intensifying. The book explores how they are responding to China’s more assertive foreign policies and what it means for U.S. national security and the shifting balance of power in the region.
Opening remarks will be delivered by Congressman Ted Yoho (R-FL), the Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific and a leading voice on U.S. foreign policy in the Indo-Pacific. In his remarks, Chairman Yoho will discuss strengthening U.S. regional partnerships, efforts to revamp development finance in the face of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, and meeting security threats throughout the region.
