A free and open Indo-Pacific: ensuring strategic competition remains peaceful.

A Ditchley conference at Greentree, in coordination with American Ditchley

Ditchley Rule:
Participants are reminded of the confidential basis on which Ditchley conferences are held. All those participating do so in their personal capacities, not as spokespeople for any country or institution. The discussions are subject to the ‘Ditchley Rule’: all contributions are unattributable and interventions are made in strict confidence; this also applies to conversations outside the formal sessions. Those present are, however, free to draw on the substance of what has been said, but not under any circumstances to disclose who it was that said it. The Rule will be scrupulously observed in any post-conference reports.

Attire at Ditchley conferences is informal ('business casual') throughout, except for dinner on the Saturday evening, for which the dress code is Business Attire.
