Virtual Event | US-Japan Relations Under Biden and Suga: The Future of a Critical Alliance

Please be advised: This event will premiere LIVE on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Tuesday, April 6.

Join Hudson Institute’s Japan Chair H.R. McMaster and expert panelists Toshihiro Nakayama, Emma Chanlett-Avery, and Zack Cooper for a discussion on relations between the U.S. and Japan.

This month, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga of Japan is scheduled to be the first foreign leader to visit President Joe Biden at the White House. Since taking office, the Biden administration has shown a firm commitment to investing in strong relations with Japan—participating in high-level phone calls, interpersonal meetings, and now a head-of-state-level meeting with its counterparts in Japan. Can we expect this momentum to continue as the U.S. and Japan grapple with challenges such as climate change, Chinese aggression, and the continued fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic? Please join our distinguished panel for this timely discussion.
