Japan and the Art of Survival
David Pilling, Asia Editor, Financial Times
The speaker will discuss the changing perceptions and reality of Japan. Starting with the tsunami and earthquake of 2011, he will talk about how Japan has dealt with its great historical crises of the past and how it has coped – and not coped – with its sundry challenges since the collapse of the bubble in 1990. He will also address the prospects for Abenomics and Tokyo’s regional diplomacy as China supplants Japan as the biggest economic and military power in the region.
