"Enduring Presence, Renewed Focus: Projecting Airpower in the Indo-Asia-Pacific"


Please join us for a special presentation by General Lori Robinson, Commander, Pacific Air Forces (PACAF) on Wednesday, February 17 from 11.45 am to 1.30 pm at the Village Hotel Changi.

General Robinson will be discussing the challenges and opportunities PACAF faces during the continued implementation of the U.S. Rebalance.  She will also address the unique role of airpower in fostering regional security and stability.

Specifically, General Robinson’s presentation will highlight how geopolitical instability, a narrowing U.S. capability advantage, and the increasing importance and vulnerability of the global commons complicate the region’s long-term trajectory.  She will share PACAF’s strategy and how the command’s presence, partnerships, power projection, and people contribute in shaping the dynamic Indo-Asia-Pacific security environment.
