Alan Dupont participated in Session 1: Regional Perspectives on Indo-Pacific Strategic Objectives

There is an emerging consensus among US allies and partners that a free, open, stable and prosperous Indo-Pacific is in the interests of all nations and must be preserved. Beyond this broad vision for regional order, however, are a wide range of differences in national priorities, proximate interests, views about rules, norms and values, and geographic considerations. How do key regional countries define Indo-Pacific strategy and its objectives? To what extent are the aims of different Indo-Pacific strategies aligned on core issues of security, geoeconomics and regional diplomacy? Are national differences in these overlapping visions a problem for regional strategy formation and, if so, how can they be bridged?
