Date and Location

March 29, 2023
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM EST
B-500 Bell Hall



​Please join the Southeast Asia Caucus, British & Irish Caucus, and Future of Diplomacy Project for a special conversation with Natalie Black (HKS MPP ’11), His Majesty’s Trade Commissioner for the Asia-Pacific. 

In 2021, the UK put forth its ‘Indo-Pacific Tilt,’ underlining the strategic importance that it places on the region. Recent political administrations in Britain have increasingly underscored the need to drive prosperity and growth with countries and institutions like ASEAN, Australia, India, and New Zealand, with trade, technology, and security to likely feature as cornerstones. What does the UK’s geopolitical and economic strategy look like today? How can the ‘Indo-Pacific Tilt’ continue to move forward beyond its written significance? ​

This event will be moderated by Abhinav Seetharaman (MPP '23).

Attendance is limited to Harvard ID holders only.
