Korea Policy Forum, Multilateral Cooperation in Northeast Asia in the Biden Era

Event Description

President Joe Biden laid out his vision of leading the world with allies and friends while emphasizing the reality of intense competition with China on many fronts in his first address to a joint session of Congress. In this complex international landscape, the countries in Northeast Asia face common challenges—including pandemics, climate change, U.S.-China technology rivalry, decoupling of the US-China in the global ICT supply chains, North Korea’s nuclear problem—that cannot be dealt with by individual nations. The upcoming U.S.-ROK summit would shed a light on the pressing need for a cooperative approach to these challenges in the region. Please join the GW Institute for Korean Studies for an online discussion with experts who will be discussing views from the United States and South Korea on regional cooperation in Northeast Asia in the Biden era.
