Because they represent the world’s two largest economies, the significance of U.S.-Japan relations cannot be understated. At the same time, any discussion of U.S.-Japan relations must take into consideration the rising influence and roles of other East Asian countries. This symposium explores economic and political issues in the region that will test the bilateral relationship in the coming decade, as well as measures that can be taken to mitigate pressures. Our distinguished speakers will offer a variety of political and economic perspectives on the increasingly complex and multilateral nature of U.S.-Japan relations.
