Asia Pacific Bulletin

 

 

 

 

 
 
The Asia Pacific Bulletin (APB) is produced by the East-West Center in Washington. APB publishes summaries of Congressional Study Groups, conferences, seminars, and visitor roundtables, as well as short articles and opinion pieces.

APB summaries are always two pages or less, designed for the busy professional or policymaker to capture the essence of dialogue and debate on issues of concern in US-Asia relations. The views expressed in this publication are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the policy or position of the East-West Center.
