In the days leading up to the Alaska meeting—in which U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and national security adviser Jake Sullivan will square off against China's top diplomat Yang Jiechi and foreign minister Wang Yi—Biden's foreign policy team has gone to extraordinary lengths to signal its resolve.u003c/p> u003cp>On Friday, Biden u003ca href="https://www.scmp.com/news/china/diplomacy/article/3125344/quad-summit-us-india-australia-and-japan-counter-chinas">convenedu003c/a> a virtual summit of leaders of three key democracies in the Indo-Pacific: Japan, India and Australia. The group of four, also known as The Quad, pledged broad cooperation on maritime, cyber, and economic security issues and promised to deliver a billion doses of COVID-19 vaccine to the region in a bid to counter China's rising influence.u003c/p> u003cp>On Monday, Blinken and U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin III traveled to Tokyo, where they extended an agreement for hosting U.S. troops on Japanese soil and reaffirmed U.S. commitment to defend Japan's control of islands in the East China Sea that are claimed by both Japan and China. At a press conference in Tokyo on Tuesday, Blinken u003ca href="https://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-secretaries-of-state-defense-push-back-against-china-in-tokyo-trip-11615900076">blasted Chinau003c/a> for using “coercion and aggression to systematically erode autonomy in Hong Kong, undercut democracy in Taiwan, abuse human rights in Xinjiang and Tibet, and assert maritime claims in the South China Sea that violate international law." u003c/p> u003cp>Blinken and Austin reiterated that warning in Seoul on Wednesday after a meeting with South Korean counterparts. That same day, the State Department u003ca href="https://www.state.gov/hong-kong-autonomy-act-update/">announcedu003c/a> that it has added 24 mainland Chinese and Hong Kong officials to a sanctions list in retaliation for Beijing's drastic overhaul of Hong Kong's election rules.u003c/p> u003cp>In Anchorage, officials from the two nations will face off for three three-hour sessions over the next two days. There are no plans to share a meal or engage in any activity that might help to break the ice. As u003cem>Foreign Policyu003c/em>'s James Palmer put it: "The format of the talks is u003ca href="https://foreignpolicy.com/2021/03/17/china-us-alaska-talks-diplomacy-blinken/">as frozen as the weatheru003c/a> outside." u003c/p> u003cp>The two sides couldn't even agree on how to characterize the exchanges. China's foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian has called the talks a "u003ca href="https://www.politico.com/news/2021/03/16/china-us-alaska-summit-476438">high-level strategic dialogueu003c/a>." Biden officials insist the meeting is a one-off, not a return to a regular dialogue.u003c/p> u003cp>Both superpowers have acknowledged opportunities for mutual benefit from collaboration on global issues like climate change and combatting the pandemic. But in those areas as well, trust is at a low ebb. The prospect of a diplomatic breakthrough in Anchorage seems remote.u003c/p> u003cp>u003cem>Bloombergu003c/em> u003ca href="https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-03-18/china-seeks-biden-xi-meeting-next-month-if-alaska-talks-go-well?srnd=premium-asia&sref=2a6vMvHc">reportsu003c/a> that Beijing is pushing for a meeting between Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping if today's talks go well (though China’s foreign ministry on Thursday u003ca href="https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-china/china-says-topic-of-potential-xi-biden-meeting-not-on-agenda-at-alaska-talks-idUSKBN2BA0P5">deniedu003c/a> that a future meeting of the leaders is on the agenda). Reportedly, one idea floated by Chinese officials is that Biden and Xi meet on April 22, which is Earth Day, to highlight efforts to cooperate on climate change. u003c/p> u003cp>U.S. officials, however, are damping down expectations, cautioning that there will be no joint statement or major announcement after discussion concludes tomorrow. Count talks in Anchorage a success if the two sides can just agree to keep talking. u003c/p> u003cp>More Eastworld news below. u003c/p> u003cp>u003cstrong>Clay Chandleru003c/strong>u003cbr>clay.chandler@fortune.comu003c/p> u003cp>u003cem>This edition of Eastworld was curated and produced by Grady McGregor.

Asian American leaders are also warning that a deepening geopolitical confrontation between the U.S. and China contributes to rising levels of racism. “The U.S.-China cold war—and especially the Republican strategy of scapegoating and attacking China for the virus—incited racism and hatred toward Asian Americans,” says Russell Jeung, a history professor at San Francisco State University and founder of Stop AAPI Hate, an organization that tracks incidents of bias and hate directed at Asian Americans. u003cem>u003ca href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/biden-china-asian-american-racism/2021/03/17/69eb4bc6-873d-11eb-82bc-e58213caa38e_story.html">Washington Postu003c/a>u003c/em>u003c/p>nu003cp>u003cstrong>Murder mysteryu003c/strong>u003c/p>nu003cp>On Feb. 25, a car filled with explosives was found outside the home of Mukesh Ambani, Asia’s wealthiest person and chairman of Indian conglomerate Reliance Industries.

Many questions remain unanswered about the murder and bomb scare, but investigators have detained one police officer in connection to planting the explosives. u003cstrong>u003cem>u003ca href="https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-56425714">BBCu003c/a>u003c/em>u003c/strong>u003c/p>nu003cp>u003cb>Corruption chargesu003c/b>u003c/p>nu003cp>On Wednesday, Myanmar’s military charged former president Aung San Suu Kyii with bribery and she now faces a 15 years in prison after the military overthrew her government in a Feb. 1 coup.

The policy was rolled out by Chinese embassies in several countries, including the U.S., where Chinese vaccines haven’t been approved.

After peaking at nearly 100,000 daily cases in September, cases in India declined to roughly 10,000 per day in February. Some experts say the wave of infections may be related to pandemic fatigue and previously cautious people stepping out of their homes after a year of isolation. “We will have to immediately stop the emerging second wave of corona,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Wednesday, urging government officials to ramp up testing, contact tracing, and the country’s vaccination campaign. u003cem>u003ca href="https://www.bloombergquint.com/business/covid-19-does-a-second-wave-pose-a-threat-to-economic-growth">Bloombergu003c/a>u003c/em>u003c/p>nu003ch3>Markets and moversu003c/h3>nu003cp>u003cstrong>Baiduu003c/strong> – The Chinese search engine giant raised $3.1 billion in its Hong Kong share sale, as the company prepares to begin trading in Hong Kong on March 23 in a blockbuster secondary listing. u003cem>u003ca href="https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-03-17/baidu-is-said-poised-to-raise-3-1-billion-in-hong-kong-offering?sref=O17fWJNl">Bloombergu003c/a>u003c/em>u003cem> u003c/em>u003c/p>nu003cp>u003cstrong>Wind poweru003c/strong> – China installed 52 gigawatts of new wind power in 2020 compared to 17 gigawatts in the U.S. China’s wind power investments cemented its position as global leader, as nearly 60% of all global wind power installations came from China last year. u003cem>u003ca href="https://www.ft.com/content/08689b14-36c8-4f8f-9876-ace83410dd0f">Financial Timesu003c/a>u003c/em>u003c/p>nu003cp>u003cstrong>SK Bioscienceu003c/strong> – Shares for the South Korean COVID-19 vaccine maker more than doubled in its trading debut on Thursday, raising the firm’s market cap to $11.5 billion.
