Conference Overview

The United States recently announced a new commercial engagement strategy for the Indo-Pacific region.

Within this region sits the commercially vibrant Southeast Asian economic corridor which has recently emerged at the crossroads of competing economic ideologies between China’s One Belt One Road policy initatives and the recently announced Indo-Pacific regional engagement strategy.

At the Indo-Pacific Dialogue we expect to have a range of discussions with a number of diverse stakeholders on what exactly is the Indo-Pacific Strategy and its engagement benefits for the Southeast Asian region.

Amongst the questions we will look to explore will be:

How will the public and private sector in Vietnam along with the Southeast Asian region benefit under this strategy?

Additionally the questions, we plan to address are:

  • What are the macroeconomic trends, credit outlook and capital flows for the Southeast Asian region?
  • How has the increased reliance on digital trade changed the economic outlook for the Southeast Asian region?
  • What will be the economic cost of financing infrastructure for Vietnam and other Southeast Asian nations to help support their future growth and development aspirations?
  • How can the Indo-Pacific strategy contribute towards positive outcomes and Southeast Asian prosperity?



We are delighted to welcome government stakeholders, members of the diplomatic community, provincial leaders, multilateral organizations, members of academic institutes and other not-for-profit professionals with an interest in Economic Public Policy.
