Guam - The Guam U.S. Asia Security Alliance will be hosting a Guam roundtable to explore key questions regarding past and present postures of U.S. forward deployed forces in the Pacific and implications for future security of the region.

Cronin is the center for new American security's senior advisor and senior director of its Asian program. According to a media release from GUASA this is the first-ever event of its kind in this region, featuring an unparalleled panel of security specialists. It is also a rare event for a private business sector organization, unrelated to military, government, NGOs, or think tanks, to host such an event, offering a unique opportunity for analysts and academics to candidly address and exchange ideas with their peers. The roundtable is scheduled for September 5th -6th at The Hyatt, but a press conference to announce details about the discussion will be held tomorrow.
