Washington’s New Approach to Asia

March 8, 2018 , 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Walter Lohman, Director of Asia Studies at The Heritage Foundation in Washington D.C., described the Trump Administration’s policies and Washington experts’ views regarding the dynamic Asian landscape at a Yokosuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies event on March 8. Touching on security, trade, human rights and other areas, Lohman shared what is new and what is consistent with past administrations.

Walter Lohman is a policy expert focused principally on Southeast Asia, but also broader Asia policy including relations with America’s allies in Japan, South Korea and Australia. He is also the leading voice at Heritage on the U.S.-Taiwan relationship and is a close observer of China policy. In addition to directing Heritage’s oldest study center, he also is an adjunct professor at Georgetown University, where he leads graduate seminars on American foreign policy interests in Southeast Asia and the role of Congress in Asia policy. Lohman previously served for four years as senior vice president and executive director of the U.S.-ASEAN Business Council. There, he oversaw the regional trade association’s mission of building U.S. market share in Southeast Asia and led multiple delegations of Fortune 500 companies to the region.

Lohman also has critical experience on Capitol Hill as a Senate staff member having served as a senior professional Republican staffer advising then-Sen. Jesse Helms and as a policy aide to Sen. John McCain. Lohman holds a bachelor’s degree in humanities from Virginia Wesleyan College and a master’s degree in foreign affairs from the University of Virginia.
