In the face of a rising China, it has never been more important for the United States to have a strong force posture in the Indo-Pacific. Last year, Congress established The Pacific Defense Initiative (PDI) to consolidate and rebalance investments that enhance deterrence. This year’s budget continues funding the PDI, but largely misses the mark on key priorities. In addition, while current and previous commanders of U.S. Indo-Pacific Command have emphasized the need for advanced defense of Guam as part of the PDI, development of such a system has been too long deferred.
As Congress approaches the Fiscal Year 2022 National Defense Authorization Act, policy professionals won’t want to miss this 30-minute Policy Pulse discussion breaking down the Pacific Defense Initiative and why defense of Guam is critical.
