As President Donald Trump approaches one year in the White House, countries across the Indo-Pacific remain uncertain about the direction of US policy in the region. Although the Trump administration has recommitted itself to Asian allies and partners, and has continued to pursue close ties with India, it has yet to articulate a comprehensive regional strategy. Uncertainty over the future of US policy comes as regional security challenges are on the rise. From the North Korean nuclear crisis and ongoing maritime tensions in East Asia, to the spectre of violent extremism and major power competition, the Indo-Pacific security landscape is becoming more volatile and difficult to manage.

In cooperation with the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney, KAS Australia and the Pacific will host an expert roundtable discussion to address these challenges and seek to identify new opportunities for strategic partnerships.
