The Quest for Economic Success in East Asia: How Economic and Trade Policies Help or Hinder

About the Event



FPRI takes the health of our staff, speakers, and guests seriously. We have been closely monitoring information from local, state, and federal officials regarding the CoronaVirus (COVID-19), and in an abundance of caution, we have decided to forego the live version of this event. In its place, we will be holding the event virtually on Zoom.



In this conversation, as resistance to liberal trade policies grow, and as China moves to create a China-centric order, our guests will explore how the US, China, and Japan view the foundations of economic growth in the years ahead, and the interplay between domestic politics, geopolitics, and what might be called geo-economics.  Jacques deLisle is Director of FPRI’s Asia Program and the Stephen Cozen Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania School of Law. His latest book is To Get Rich is Glorious: Challenges Facing China’s Economic Reform.  Shihoko Goto is Deputy Director of Geo-economics at the Wilson Center in Washington, DC.  Prior to joining the Wilson Center, she spent 10 years as a journalist writing about international political economy, with an emphasis on Asian markets. 


This event is cosponsored by The Haverford School and moderated by John Nagl, Headmaster of the Haverford School and Senior Fellow of FPRI.
