This presentation will look at some broad geopolitical trends in the Indo-Pacific with a view to glimpsing what the region may look like in 2030. This is not an exercise in prediction but of extrapolation from known variables.
Specifically, it will examine key aspects of US policy and Chinese policy and US - China relations, as well as regional responses to them: ASEAN, Japan, India, Australia and Korea. Drawing on these responses, it will attempt to sketch the likely regional architecture.
