From December 5-7, the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands partnered with the Hoover Institution at Stanford University to hold the Indo-Pacific Security Dialogue. Co-hosted by Hoover Institution Director, former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, General Jim Mattis (USMC ret.) and Sunnylands President Ambassador David Lane (ret.), the Indo-Pacific Security Dialogue convened 22 senior national security officials and leaders from Australia, India, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States, along with additional think tank experts and dignitaries, for a two-and-a-half-day dialogue on pressing topics in the Indo-Pacific region.
At the historic Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage, California, participants at the Indo-Pacific Security Dialogue discussed their shared vision for a free and open Indo-Pacific region in the context of regional security challenges, multilateral institutions, and technology cooperation. Fostered by Sunnylands’ proven model of small, intensive, candid exchanges of ideas and perspectives, the Indo-Pacific Security Dialogue resulted in newly-formed relationships among high-level government officials and other leaders, opportunities for future diplomatic and security initiatives, and ultimately closer regional integration between allies and partners.
