**This event will premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Thursday, July 23.**

Join Hudson Institute for a conversation on the trajectory of U.S.-Japan defense cooperation and how the Japanese government is utilizing the suspension of its Aegis Ashore deployment plan as an opportunity for a comprehensive review of the country's national security strategy.

As Japan reviews its current missile defense posture, Prime Minister Abe is considering options to implement long-range strike capabilities as a major component of the nation's future defense posture. However, a rapidly evolving regional security environment and limited defense resources pose significant hurdles to implementing a new strategy.

How can the U.S. and Japan cooperate to achieve a cost-effective defense portfolio by redefining the alliance's roles, missions, and capabilities? What kind of expectations should be placed on U.S. and Japanese missile defense capabilities in response to the North Korean missile threat? Since China has not only ballistic missiles but also cruise missiles and hypersonic glide weapons, how should the U.S. and Japan seek the appropriate mix of offensive and defensive capabilities as a counter to Beijing?

Defense experts from both countries will weigh in on these and other questions. The conversation will be moderated by Hudson Japan Chair Fellow Masashi Murano.
