      The election of a new American president is an event of great
      importance to the entire world, not just the United States. From
      Japan to Afghanistan, the United States plays a crucial role in the
      security, political, and economic affairs of the region. America's
      44th president will face many challenges once in office including
      rebuilding trust in America, reviving the American economy without
      protectionism, and how to combat terrorism. Ultimately, the United
      States must effectively utilize and support multilateral
      institutions to uphold international law and foster the common
      interests such as international justice. Future U.S. relations with
      Northeast, Southeast, and South Asia depend on how these efforts
      unfold.
