Whi le Chinese President Xi Jinping&rsquo\;s signature Belt and Road Initiativ e promises infrastructure development\, the Trump administration&rsquo\;s Indo-Pacific Strategy seeks to enhance U.S. leadership in the region and i ntegrate efforts to manage a rising China. With a U.S. national security s trategy that labels China as a strategic competitor\, both sides are conce rned about each other's intentions in seeking dominance\, and whether regi onal dynamics will be shaped in a manner disadvantageous to future coopera tion\, peace and prosperity. How will each power resist or seek to accommo date the other's national goals? What role do U.S. allies such as Japan pl ay in defining or bridging these gaps? Please join our experts from the U. S.\, Japan and China as they discuss strategic competition in the Indo-Pac ific. \n \n <strong>Speakers:</strong>\n<strong>Yuqun Shao</strong>\, Seni or Fellow\, Center for America Studies\, Shanghai Institutes for Internati onal Studies\n <strong>Yoshihide Soeya</strong>\, Professor of Political S cience and International Relations\, Faculty of Law\, Keio University \n \ n <strong>Moderator:</strong>\n<strong>Gerald L.
