The 18th Asia Pacific Roundtable addressed a number of comprehensive security challenges confronting the region. Uppermost were the implications to global and regional security posed by the extraordinary policies adopted by major powers following the Sept 11 attacks and the continuing threat posed by international terrorism. A major subject of interest was whether there would be a change in US foreign and security policy following the then impending presidential election, what forms any change may take, and the likely implications. The inconclusive campaign against the international terrorist threat was also a cause for anxiety. One of the issues raised was whether the policies and measures instituted to defeat terrorism, as well as the invasion of Iraq, were not in fact further aggravating the problems.
