2020 Presidential Election: The Biden Administration & U.S.-Japan Relations

Monday, November 16, 6—7 PM EST  

Joe Biden has been declared the winner of the U.S. presidential election, with more than the 270 Electoral College votes needed to secure the presidency after his win in Pennsylvania. In his victory speech, Biden promised to rebuild the nation that has been torn apart by multiple crises and “make America respected around the world again.” How is President-elect Biden preparing for transition into the White House? What does his victory mean for foreign and economic policy in Asia, particularly U.S.-Japan relations? In this webinar, expert speakers discuss Biden’s victory in the U.S. presidential election, the implications for Japan, and the future of U.S.-Japan relations.

To address these questions, Asia Society Policy Institute Vice Presidents Wendy Cutler and Daniel Russel will join Yuichi Hosoya, Professor of International Politics at Keio University, and Joshua W. Walker, PhD., President and CEO of the Japan Society, will moderate the discussion. James Kondo, Co-Chair of Asia Society Japan Center and Chairman of the Board of the International House of Japan, will deliver welcoming remarks.
