Protectionist and anti-globalist attitudes are taking root in the U.S. and Europe. So how should Asian countries -- which have built their economies through trade -- respond? This was the pressing question at Nikkei's 23rd International Conference on The Future of Asia, held in Tokyo on June 5 and 6. In speeches and interviews, political leaders and experts called on governments to push back by deepening their commitment to economic integration. Some also emphasized the need to confront security risks, including terrorism and instability on the Korean Peninsula, to safeguard the region's future.
