[MEMBERS ONLY] Biden and Asia: Perspectives on the First 100 Days
In his inaugural address, President Joe Biden spoke of the United States once again standing as “a beacon to the globe”. In many parts of the world there was a sense that “America is back,” including a return of U.S. engagement and commitment to its allies and the world. As we approach the 100-day mark of the Biden administration, the new President has pivoted sharply from his predecessor. In Asia, the new administration hosted an early meeting of “Quad” leaders from Japan, Australia, and India. The Biden foreign policy team have also shored up key alliances and moved to quickly resolve the military cost-sharing dispute in Korea that had festered in the Trump era; rejoined the Paris Climate Accord; and are exploring rejoining the Iran Nuclear Agreement. Less clear are what changes are in store in terms of the long-standing U.S. military presence in Afghanistan, or next steps for the topic that will dwarf all others: the U.S. relationship with China.

Join us as we mark the Biden Administration’s first 100 Days with a discussion led by Asia Society President and CEO Kevin Rudd, featuring Eurasia Group’s Ian Bremmer and the Hoover Institution's Elizabeth Economy. A wide-ranging review of what has changed, what has not, and what these first 100 days suggest about the trajectory and challenges facing this presidency, for Asia in particular.
