The Point | How does Trump’s exit from the TPP influence China?

Tuesday,Feb 12, 2019







A geopolitical puzzle is emerging in the Asia Pacific region, with competing interests in trade, security, infrastructure, and resources reshaping the map. U.S. President Donald Trump’s Indo-Pacific strategy was designed to rebalance China under joint efforts by the so-called Quad Alliance, namely the U.S., Japan, Australia and India. So, how will the Trump administration balance its “America First” outlook with its uncertain alliances and murky strategies in the “Indo Pacific” region to “rebalance China” in 2019? What prospects can be expected between China and Japan?

Dr. Kent Calder, an Edwin O. Reischauer Professor at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, and Wang Huiyao, President of the Center for China and Globalization (CCG), joined The Point.
