How does the new U.S. Administration affect Asia, Europe and Switzerland?

Donald Trump took office on January 20, 2017 with the ambition to "make America great again". The result seems to be the redefinition of the basic characteristics that make up US foreign and commercial policy. On occasion of his first hundred days in office, Asia Society Switzerland and Vontobel have partnered to discuss the opportunities and risks of America’s realignment and the possible consequences for Asia, Europe and Switzerland. The discussion will feature Constanze Stelzenmüller, Senior Fellow at Brookings Institution; Evan Medeiros, Managing Director for Asia at Eurasia Group; and Zeno Staub, Vontobel’s CEO. It will be moderated by Ed Luce, chief US commentator for the Financial Times.
