The US Policy towards Korea, China, and Japan: Challenges and Prospects  (Academic)

Dr. Jin Park Distinguished Chair Professor at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (HUFS); Former Chairman, Foreign Affairs, Trade and National Unification Committee, ROK National Assembly; Chairman, Korean-American Association; Chairman, Asia Future Institute

Dr. Jin Park, a renowned Korean scholar and politician, will talk about the implications and prospects of recent U.S. foreign policy initiatives toward Northeast Asia including Korea, China and Japan under the new Trump administration. Korea and Japan, as key allies of the U.S. sharing democracy and market economy, are coping to digest the impact of America First policy in terms of defense cost sharing and free trade regime such as the Korea-U.S. FTA and the TPP. The U.S. will have to deal with diverse geopolitical and economic challenges in Northeast Asia, particularly by the rise of China, regional rivalry between China and Japan, South Korea's alliance management with the U.S. and, last but not least, North Korean security threats. Meanwhile, the interplay of domestic politics and changing dynamics of trilateralism among the three countries in the region will reversely influence the U.S. foreign policy directions in the future.
