dc.description.abstract The Senior Policy Seminar is a keystone event in the East-West Center's annual calendar. The 2008 seminar, ninth in the series, brought together senior foreign policy officials, private sector leaders, and analysts from countries around the region for nonofficial, frank, and non-attribution discussions of security issues in the Asia Pacific region. Although the 2008 Senior Policy Seminar took place in July, before the economic crisis that led to unprecedented steps by the U.S. government to restore confidence, the overarching theme of the meeting was the turmoil in the global economy--including financial markets, resources, and trade--and the related challenges to sustaining economic growth and to the regional order. With the U.S. presidential election campaign entering its final phase, the seminar also considered how these issues will impact, and be impacted by, the next president, and the likely views of the next president on foreign policy issues, particularly in the Asia Pacific region. This report presents the rapporteur's summary of the group discussions and the theme sessions. As in past years, the report adheres to the "Chatham House Rule" under which observations referred to in the report are not attributed to any individual participant. All views expressed in these documents are those of the participants and do not necessarily represent either a consensus of all views expressed or the views of the East-West Center. The principal value of the seminar is always found in the insights and contributions of the participants, both those who made opening presentations at the various sessions and those who participated in the frequently lively discussions. It is their observations that provide the analyses and judgments recorded in this report.
