Speaker Profile: Jeff M. Smith is Director of The Heritage Foundation’s Asian Studies Center. As director of the center, Smith will lead The Heritage Foundation’s effort to counter the threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party—America’s defining national security challenge of the 21st century. Smith will work to position Heritage as a global leader in the battle against Beijing’s malign influence and lead the center in helping unite the movement behind polices that cripple the CCP’s influence, thwart their ambitions to surpass the U.S. as a world power, expose its role in the COVID-19 pandemic, and hold China accountable for its gross human rights violations. He will also oversee research and policy work for the entire Indo-Pacific region, including the U.S.-India relationship, the response to North Korea, and the special relationships with South Korea and Japan. 

He is the Author/Editor of “Asia’s Quest for Balance: China’s Rise and Balancing in the Indo-Pacific” (2018), and of “Cold Peace: China-India Rivalry in the 21st Century” (2014). He has contributed to multiple books on Asian Security issues, testified as an expert witness before multiple congressional committees, served in an advisory role for several presidential campaigns, and regularly briefs officials in the executive and legislative branches on matters of Asian security. His writing on Asian security issues has appeared in Foreign AffairsThe Wall Street JournalForeign Policy, the Harvard International ReviewJane’s Intelligence ReviewThe National Interest, and The Diplomat, among others. In recent years his expert commentary has been featured by The EconomistThe New York TimesFOX NewsThe Washington TimesReuters, and the BBC, among others.
