The Indo-Pacific is perceived as one of the most important terrains of rivalry in the emerging new world order. USA and China have been competing for the economic, political and technological domination, dealing with the countries of the region at different levels.
Taking into consideration China rising as a global superpower which decided to go for an assertive foreign policy in South China Sea and the Taiwan strait, security is now the key domain for the West. The European Council conclusions published on April 16th, 2021 stressed the importance of the European presence in the region.
• How do the Western powers (G7 countries) see the current situation in Indo-Pacific?
• What is Japan’s perspective (the only Asian country in G7) on the security cooperation in the region?
• What can the EU do in the region? What would be the expectations of Japan?
