This report focused on American strategic interests in East Asia and outlined recommendations to improve US Government public diplomacy activities directed at Asia. The report noted that increased attention is needed, as well as increased funding and better staffing and coordination.


No region in the world is more important to America's long-term prosperity and security than East Asia and the Pacific.

Public diplomacy in East Asia should be a central component of a national strategy to promote vital long-term U.S. security and economic interests in this dynamic region.
