In Washington DC, the Asan Institute for Public Policy hosted the launch of the United States Studies Centre's Survey on America's Role in the Indo-Pacific. The report is the first major, multi-country survey of public opinion since the 2016 US election and reveals a complex picture of public attitudes in Australia, China, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea and India on issues such as American influence under President Donald Trump, international trade, the US-China relationship, and the likelihood of conflict in the region.
