Japan’s adoption of a pathbreaking National Security Strategy in December 2022 began a transformative period for Japanese security policy. In their meeting in January 2023, President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Fumio Kishida confirmed joint efforts to strengthen the bilateral alliance to meet heightened challenges in the Indo-Pacific. Prime Minister Kishida has shown bold leadership of the democratic international community by visiting Ukraine last month, and committing to host the G7 summit in his hometown of Hiroshima from May 19 to 21. 

In this event hosted by Hudson Institute and Sasakawa USA, the Honorable Akira Amari—one of the most influential leaders of the Liberal Democratic Party in Japan’s House of Representatives and a champion of Japan’s economic security—will share his views on the G7 summit and Japanese leadership.  The Hon. Amari’s remarks will be followed by a Q&A session moderated by Dr. Kenneth R. Weinstein, distinguished fellow at Hudson Institute, and Dr. Satohiro Akimoto, chairman and president of Sasakawa USA.
