“Navigating unfamiliar waters requires a strategic approach. Economic growth in the Indo-Pacific means that this is ‘where the puck is going to be.’ This study is not only timely, but necessary!” – The Honourable John Manley
The Indo-Pacific region is home to 60 percent of the world’s population and accounts for roughly 60 percent of global GDP. It should figure prominently in any discussion of trade and foreign policy in Canada, home to many significant Indo-Pacific diaspora populations, yet Canadian relations with the countries of the region are under-developed and our businesses under-perform in their markets. The Indo-Pacific: New Strategies for Canadian Engagement with a Critical Region makes the case for a renewed Canadian effort in this vast, diverse, and dynamic part of the world. Its panel of distinguished authors—policy makers and business leaders with direct experience Indo-Pacific—identify key priorities and opportunities and provide a comprehensive road map for a substantive and sustained presence in the region.
