The Indo-Pacific is the epicenter of US-China competition. This competition plays out over domains and dimensions ranging from the military to institutions to narratives. This presentation examines the core strengths and shortcomings of the United States in the ongoing competition, including the status of U.S. relations with regional allies and partners. It offers a perspective on what priorities should animate U.S. regional policy in the years ahead.
