Pardee Center Hosts Webinar on Impact of RCEP
On March 11, 2021, The Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future, an affiliated center of the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, hosted a webinar exploring the long-term implications of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP).
Part of the Pardee Center’s Rising Powers Initiative (RPI), the event featured Alice Ba, Professor at University of Delaware; Sreeram Sundar Chaulia, Professor and Dean, Jindal School of International Affairs; Wang Huiyao, Founder and President of Center for China and Globalization, and Jorge Heine, Research Professor at the Pardee School.
The conversation focused on the future of the region following the November 2020 signing of the RCEP by 15 nations in Asia and Australasia, but with the notable exception of India. The panelists discussed the origins and significance of the RCEP — particularly the role played by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) — and the respective roles of India and China in the future of the world’s fastest-growing region.
