The world is currently facing a plethora of crises and challenges to its global security and the international liberal order. Global and local economic partnerships are changing as well. The decision of President Donald Trump to withdraw the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) signified a major shift in U.S. trade policy since the partnership was supposed to sustain American influence in the Asia-Pacific region.

Bart Édes, the North American Representative of the Asian Development Bank, will talk about the future of Asia-Pacific economic integration and the local and regional impacts of the United States' withdrawal from the TPP.

Mr. Édes will also delve into the new role that Asian countries are taking on the international stage as the U.S. becomes more isolationist. As Asia continues to rise, what contemporary challenges does the region face?
