The election of Donald Trump as the 45th U.S. President surprised observers on both sides of the Pacific, and has raised more questions than answers in terms of what it means for U.S. policy in Asia. President Trump’s “America First”-focused policy has called for tougher trade, investment, and currency policies, particularly vis-à-vis China, which could have significant reverberations across Asia.
What would a U.S.-China trade war mean for Asian economies? And given President Trump’s calls for protectionist policies to “Make America Great Again,” how will the U.S. engage with Asia’s current powerhouse of growth—ASEAN? Or the booming workforce and populist growth policies of India?
