A New Dawn for Japan’s Relations with the United States? Japan’s Evolving Security and Economic Challenges Beyond its Borders

Japan will be hosting the upcoming Group of Seven summit meeting in May, where leaders of the world’s wealthiest nations will discuss prospects for the global economy and security threats facing international stability, among other issues. But the challenges facing the G7 leaders and possible actions they may take to tackle those issues, or those they choose to ignore, will impact economic growth and political stability worldwide. So while the domestic challenges facing Prime Minister Shinzo Abe continue to grow, from the Bank of Japan introducing negative interest rates to increased North Korean military activities just outside of its borders, expectations for Japan to do more to encourage global growth and ensure stability in the Asia-Pacific and beyond are growing. Join us to discuss how Japan may be able to meet those challenges within its own borders and beyond, and the evolution of relations between Tokyo and Washington in particular.
