Due to inclement weather, the event will be held entirely online. Thank you for your understanding. We apologize for any inconvenience caused. 

To what extent will de-risking shape regional economic dynamics? What will be the greatest military flashpoint in the region next year? Which 2024 election will have the greatest impact on international relations in the Indo-Pacific? Join CSIS experts to explore these and other questions during our annual preview of economic, political, and security developments across the region.

This event is made possible through general support to the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
