As a result of the government shutdown, President Barack Obama remained in Washington to deal with the ongoing budget battles rather than attend the annual leaders meetings of APEC and the East Asia Summit. The initial reactions from Asia have raised concerns about the United States’ ability to remain engaged in the region.
On October 15, KEI, CSIS and Carnegie held a program discussing how the government shutdown and potential debt default have affected relations with Asia.
