In response to China’s rise, the term ‘Indo-Pacific’ has become increasingly popular among strategic policy circles. The United States, Japan, Australia, and India have all created their own Indo-Pacific strategies or approaches, each with a slightly different interpretation – and ambition – for the region. But how do other countries, both internal and external to the Indo-Pacific, use the term? For over one year, the Henry Jackson Society and the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam have been working together to ascertain what the Indo-Pacific means for both the United Kingdom and Vietnam, in geoeconomic and geopolitical terms.

The Henry Jackson Society therefore invites you to this online discussion where a new edited collection of essays – ‘The Indo-Pacific: British and Vietnamese perspectives’ – will be released. The session will look at how both countries are positioning themselves in light of geopolitical changes in the region, with a particular focus on Vietnam’s potential role as a linchpin of security in the Indo-Pacific, Britain’s growing focus on the region, and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations’ importance as a mechanism for upholding a rules-based order in the Indo-Pacific.
