With growing interdependencies between states, economic developments in Asia are increasingly intertwined with geopolitics. What are the impacts of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, the Silk Road Fund and other China-led global development institutions on the region’s economic relations? What are the likely consequences of geopolitical rivalries over energy and natural resources? How is China’s economic slowdown likely to affect the regional stability? The panel of leading experts on the region’s economic and energy security will discuss the implications of the interplay between geopolitics and economics in Asia.
