The 2020 U.S. presidential election is right around the corner, with Joe Biden as the Democratic nominee facing the incumbent president, Donald Trump, in November. From the coronavirus pandemic, unemployment and the economic downturn, to protests against police brutality and racial injustice, many critical issues continue to color the 2020 campaign. What is the current political landscape and how will the outcome of the presidential election affect major domestic and international issues, including U.S.-Japan relations? In this webinar, a panel of experts from Japan and the United States zero in on the emerging themes of the presidential election, discussing the possible outcome and its impact on businesses and U.S.-Japan relations.
