Photo Gallery: Session 5. How Asia Works. Asia-Pacific, Indo-Pacific and Other Strategic Constructs

The fifth session of the Valdai Club's 16th Annual Meeting was dedicated to the topic: "Greater Eurasia as a New Form of Geo-Economic Space Organization".

Asia’s central position leads to a boom of concepts related to its strategic arrangement. China puts emphasis on economic projects, but they have a clear geostrategic profile. The United States is painstakingly building mechanisms to deter China, at the same time eroding multilateral and universal structures. Sub-regional organizations are being created, but their future is uncertain. What are the benefits of this competition of approaches? Is there a chance to build a united Asia or will be torn by competition despite the abundancy of important tasks which can only be solved by joint efforts?
