The Indo-Pacific is a extremely controversial and diverse region that spans much of Asia and beyond. The Indo-Pacific, home to more than half of the world’s population, is and is likely to continue to be the area of primary strategic concern for states in the political, economic, environmental and social spheres. As more states continue to focus on the Indo-Pacific, it is important that nations in the region are well prepared to tackle a range of challenges and opportunities that may arise.
The INSSSL hosted a series of academics, army staff and public officials for a round table discussion on’ Indo-Pacific: Security, Geopolitics and Connectivity’ on June 21.
This event, presented by five panelists including Prof. Asanga Abeyagoonasekera, Rear Admiral Noel Kalubowila, Dr. Satoru Nagao, Ruwanthi Jayasekara, and Lucy Stronach, provided a distinctive perspective into these threats and possibilities.
