By: Hiroko Maeda |

China’s military buildup has shaken regional stability and poses a challenge to the U.S.-Japan alliance.

In light of China’s increasing assertiveness, the U.S. and Japan need more consultations and should share a strategy for maintaining peace and stability in the region. In particular, the study identifies cybersecurity and maritime capacity building in ASEAN as key areas where the U.S. and Japan can cooperate to establish a rules based order in the Asia-Pacific region.
