Joe Biden became President during an extraordinarily difficult time for the U.S., with the coronavirus pandemic worsening and an increasingly grim economic outlook. His priorities will include not only addressing challenges at home but also focusing on international issues and rebuilding America’s European and Asian alliances. What are President Biden’s priorities for U.S. foreign policy and how will this impact Japan? What will he accomplish in his first 100 days in office? In this webinar, speakers discuss the Biden administration’s strategies and policies, and their implications for U.S.-Japan economic and security relations.
