Pacific Amphibious Development and Implications for the U.S. Fleet

Please join CSIS as we discuss the findings of a new report on the implications for the U.S. Marine Corps and Navy of increasing amphibious capabilities across the Asia-Pacific. The report explores how the U.S. has responded to growing global demands for amphibious forces and the effects of increasingly distributed operations on current and future amphibious capabilities. In addition, this effort offers a detailed assessment of amphibious developments in Australia, Japan, India, the Philippines, Singapore, and South Korea, how these nations may respond to a range of scenarios, and where U.S. forces may be required to augment allied and partner operations. 

Featuring a keynote address by:
Lieutenant General John E. Wissler, USMC
Commander, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Command

Followed by a panel discussion on:
