The Biden Administration: Asia Reacts

Yuki Tatsumi, Dino Patti Djalal, and Suhasini Haidar weigh in on the hopes and fears East, Southeast, and South Asian countries have for the Biden administration.

On December 2, The Diplomat hosted a live webinar discussing reactions in the Indo-Pacific to Joe Biden’s victory in the U.S. presidential election. What do countries in East, Southeast, and South Asia hope to see from the United States in 2021 and beyond – and what are they most concerned about?

Watch the recorded conversation below, featuring Yuki Tatsumi, a senior fellow and co-director of the East Asia Program at the Stimson Center in Washington, D.C.; Dino Patti Djalal, the chairman of the Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia and a former Indonesian ambassador to the United States; and Suhasini Haidar, the diplomatic affairs editor at The Hindu, one of India’s most prominent national dailies.
