This event will be the last in a series of five annual conferences on the UK-Japan relationship and opportunities for closer bilateral cooperation.
This year, the conference will explore UK and Japanese approaches on the risks and opportunities – political and economic – facing Asia and Europe. Topics will include Britain and Japan’s respective bilateral relations with the US under President Trump, economic opportunities for Anglo-Japanese cooperation as we enter a potential period of deglobalization, China’s future as a geoeconomic actor and the impact of populism, including potential limits to regionalism, in both Asia and the West.
The UK-Japan Global Seminar Series is funded by The Nippon Foundation and held in partnership with The Nippon Foundation and the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.
This event will be simultaneously translated into Japanese and English.
