Be part of the first annual high school Asia Challenge simulation virtually at the University of Pittsburgh. The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), comprised of Australia, Brunei, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Vietnam, China, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao, Myanmar, Philippines, South Korea, and Thailand will meet in two sessions to address immediate and long-term crises affecting the partnership.

The morning session will center around a simulation of conflict in the Korean Peninsula and the broader threat of nuclear aggression in the region. The afternoon session will focus on unresolved issues that have arisen out of RCEP's inception--such as labor, the environment, and state-owned enterprises.
