Seeking solutions to two decades of economic stagnation in Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has dedicated his second term in office to an ambitious economic reform agenda, known as “Abenomics.” In the international arena, Prime Minister Abe has also pushed for Japan to assume a stronger leadership role in global affairs and strengthen its commitment as an ally of the United States. However, continued low economic growth, a rising China, and increasing security tensions across the region pose opportunities and challenges for Prime Minister Abe’s domestic and foreign policies.
Please join the Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) for an AsiaConnect teleconference briefing with the Hon. Kevin Rudd, President of ASPI. Following a visit to Japan, he will share his perspectives on Prime Minister Abe’s policy aims and achievements.
To register and obtain call-in information, please email AsiaDC@asiasociety.org.
ASPI’s AsiaConnect is a telephone briefing series on pressing issues in Asia and U.S.-Asia relations, made possible through the generous support of Asia Society Trustee Mitch Julis.
