Invitation Program for U.S. Think Tank Researchers
February 27-March 3, 2023
Keizai Koho Center invited U.S. think tank researchers to Tokyo, providing them with opportunities to exchange views with Japanese business executives, lawmakers, government officers, scholars, and other policy experts. The week-long program aims to contribute to mutual understanding between the U.S. and Japan. Three researchers, Mr. Riley Walters, Deputy Director and Japan Chair of the Hudson Institute, Mr. Jon Bateman, Senior Fellow of Technology and International Affairs Program of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and Mr. Clark Packard, Research Fellow of Herbert A. Stiefel Center for Trade Policy Studies at Cato Institute participated in the program, which was held in-person.
This year’s program focused on the topic of economic security and concluded with a symposium titled “Economic Security: US and Japanese Responses and the Business Implications”. The researchers shared their views on this issue and discussed the realities of strategic decoupling. A panel discussion was moderated by Ms. Kaori Iida, Director of the Digital News Department at NHK.
