China, Asia’s most dynamic economy and a growing power in the region, is playing a significant role in Japan’s economic recovery and rising role in global economic affairs. Japanese direct investment into China and its dependency on China for cheap imports continue to grow. The same can be said for the U.S. At the same time, complex political and economic relationships between Japan, China, the U.S., and the region cast a shadow over Japan’s continued recovery. How sustainable is China’s strength in economic growth? To what extent does Japan’s economic future depend on China? What are the economic and geopolitical variables that could affect the outlook for Japan’s economic growth? This symposium explores the myths and realities behind the relationship between Asia’s two most vibrant economies amid a rapidly changing geopolitical and economic landscape.
