The Asia-Pacific Defense Outlook for 2015

February 17, 2015 — Jack Midgely, Ph.D., director with Deloitte Tohmatsu Consulting in Tokyo Japan, joins “Off the Shelf” to talk about the Asia-Pacific Defense Outlook for 2015.

Dr. Midgely provides an overview of the region’s defense environment including national defense priorities and corresponding budget trends.

He also provides his keen insights into the evolving security challenges which are driving bi-lateral and multi-lateral relationships across the region.

Dr. Midgely sees tension but not conflict; collaboration but not community; and convergence but not breakout.
