Discussion with Heino Klinck

February 7 @ 12:00 pm 2:00 pm EST

Please join BENS NY for a luncheon conversation on Great Power Competition with China led by Heino Klinck, Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for East Asia on Wednesday, February 7th. We will especially discuss the outcomes of the Taiwanese general election taking place on January 13th, what those results bode for US/China relations, and why we should continue to care about this geopolitical flashpoint.

As the DASD for East Asia, Mr. Klinck devised and implemented U.S. defense policy in a portfolio of over 20 countries and territories, advancing national security interests through defense strategy development, bilateral alliance management, security cooperation, contingency planning, and program oversight. Mr. Klink retired from the U.S. Army as a Colonel and served two tours as the Military Attaché in China.

A special thank you to BENS Board Member Mark Shenkman for hosting this discussion at Shenkman Capital Management.


Cost: $35
