The Rebalance Within Asia: The Evolution of Japan-India Relations

September 11, 2014 // 2:00pm5:30pm

Japan and India are the two largest democracies in the most populous and dynamic region in the world. Both countries are also facing the challenge of dealing with rapidly changing security as well as economic realities. While Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has looked increasingly toward greater multilateral cooperation to ensure regional stability, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is seeking to develop closer ties in East Asia through Japan. Japan and India share many common concerns, including the prospect of accommodating China's rise and broader changes in regional geopolitics, as well as meeting energy needs and ensuring continued economic growth. Join us in a discussion about prospects for a strategic partnership between the two countries and how closer ties will impact relations with their neighbors in the Asia-Pacific region.

Light refreshments available from 1:30 p.m.
