The topic of this year’s conference will be “The Impact of the Indo-Pacific Strategy on Asia.”We have invited papers covering this topic from various angles. This strategy is the terminology applied by Australia, India, Indonesia, and the United States to explain their foreign policy priorities. All the different countries of the greater Eurasian region, from South Asia, ASEAN, China, Central Asia, and Northeast Asia now reflect this concept. The 20 minute presentations of the speakers will be published in an upcoming APHA Journal


Conference registration is from 9:00-9:30am followed by opening remarks and our Keynote Speaker, His Excellency OTGONBAYAR Yondon, Mongolian Ambassador to the U.S. Lunch will be provided by USAI. There will be two afternoon panels. A Japanese tea ceremony will conclude the conference activities.
