Making Investments Today to Prepare for Tomorrow Making Investments Today to Prepare for Tomorrow

BACKGROUND: The recently released DoD Strategic Guidance (January 2012) states that America will continue to maintain a global presence, with emphasis on the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East while still ensuring our ability to maintain our defense commitments to Europe, and strengthening alliances and partnerships across all regions.

U.S. economic and security interests are inextricably linked to developments in the arc extending from the Western Pacific and East Asia into the Indian Ocean region and South Asia, creating a mix of evolving challenges and opportunities. The maintenance of peace, stability, the free flow of commerce, and of U.S. influence in this dynamic region will depend in part on an underlying balance of military capability and presence.
