Evening Lecture

Friday, October 25, 4:30–6 PM

The event has been cancelled. Due to Typhoon Hagibis’ effects in Japan, the Tokyo Governor will not be making a trip to New York at this time.

Tokyo is ranked as the third comprehensively powerful city in the world by the 2018 Mori Memorial Foundation’s Global Power City Index, and the U.S. travel magazine Conde Nast Traveler poll selected Tokyo as the world’s best city. Along with hosting the Games Tokyo 2020, 2020 is also significant for Tokyo, as the year marks the 60th anniversary of sister city relations with New York City. With nine months to go until the opening ceremony, Japan’s capital is working on a dramatic transformation for the Games Tokyo 2020, focusing more on the intangible forms of legacy, such as rolling out 5G technology and engaging in sustainable initiatives. In addition to taking measures to become the leading global financial center, empowering women, and promoting tourism, Tokyo is developing a long-term strategy to become the world’s greatest and most dynamic city. In this program, Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike discusses Tokyo’s history, aspirations for the Games Tokyo 2020 and her vision for a stronger U.S.-Japan partnership.
