Asian Americans are projected to be the fastest growing minority group in the U.S. The future of this group will be highly important to America's leadership in business and trade, science and technology, and as a global power. The response of our government to the rise of China has had repercussions on Asian Americans who have contributed to America's global competitiveness. Our panel will discuss our domestic policy options to keep America at the top of its game.
