SINGAPORE -- Bearing stars and crests on shoulders, high-ranking military personnel decked in a spectrum of colors -- green, gray, brown and white -- paced hurriedly across the hallways of the sprawling Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore on Saturday, skillfully navigating cordons and checks by security personnel.

The last time the Shangri-La Dialogue took place in person in 2019, the Quad leaders had never held a summit, and frameworks such as AUKUS -- the new U.S., U.K. and Australia grouping -- and the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework -- U.S. President Joe Biden's attempt to deepen economic engagement in the region -- did not exist.
