In his book, In the Dragon’s Shadow, The Diplomat editor Sebastian Strangio talks about the challenges for Southeast Asia in managing the rise of China. Do Japan’s longstanding ties to the region—including as its largest infrastructure investor-- stand it in good stead to provide a counterweight to China? And what can Canada learn from Japan in its approach to this important region? Join Strangio and a panel of international experts to discuss the roles of Japan, Canada, the USA and China in Southeast Asia.
