What should Japan do to enhance stability and prosperity in Asia-Pacific? What shouldn't it do? As the U.S. continues its "pivot" towards Asia, what does the Obama administration expect from Japan? China is increasing its presence across Asia, and challenging U.S. power in the region—what are its hopes for the future?
