The Business & Policy Forum hosts public and invitation-only programs about the people and issues that define U.S.-Japan relations in a regional and global context. Convening key players and emerging leaders in both countries to address cutting-edge issues, the Forum is an opportunity for the exchange of ideas inspired by the Japanese concept of kizuna (絆), or togetherness. The Forum will act as a public square, granting unparalleled access to leaders and in-depth networking opportunities. Annually, more than 4,000 executives participate in conferences, lectures, symposia, and receptions that are invaluable for helping participants better grasp the financial, business, and policy challenges that affect Japan and the U.S.

U.S. Midterm Elections: Key Takeaways & Impact on U.S.-Japan Relations

Wednesday, November 16, 6:00 pm

The U.S. midterm elections on November 8 will determine which political party will control Congress and shape the second half of Joe Biden’s term as president. COVID, inflation and growing fears of recession are only some of the factors expected to impact the way Americans vote. How will the outcome affect President Biden and his agenda for the next two years? Should we anticipate significant changes in the foreign policy landscape, particularly in U.S.-Japan relations? Our speakers discuss the midterm election results, what this means for President Biden, and the impact on bilateral relations between the United States and Japan.
