Defense One Summit Leadership Briefing 2016: Adm. Harry Harris of Pacific Command

What's next for Pacific Command? Hear it from Adm. Harris, who leads America's largest military command in one of the world's most complex and dynamic regions.

Join us for a special Defense One Leadership Briefing to kick off this year’s Defense One Summit week as Adm. Harry Harris, commander of U.S. Pacific Command, sits for an exclusive conversation with Kevin Baron, Defense One Executive Editor, on Tues., Nov. 15, in Washington, D.C.

The outspoken Harris presides over the U.S. military’s largest geographic command during a time of extraordinary and unexpected challenges, as China continues its South China Sea build-up and concerns rise over two of America’s oldest and reliable allies in Southeast Asia—the Philippines and Thailand. Meanwhile, American forces in the Pacific are keeping watch over Japan and South Korea, responding to North Korea threats, while tracking Islamic extremism, cybersecurity, natural disasters, and maintaining the freedom of the most important shipping lanes in the world.

When: Tuesday, November 15, 2016—10:00 - 11:00 a.m.

Where: Horizon Ballroom Ronald Reagan Building 1300 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20004
