Japan-US relations and East Asia After the US election
- Ambassador Ichiro Fujisaki (President, The America-Japan Society)
On 3 November 2020, American voters voted after the most eventful year in American history since 1945. Besides the Covid-19 pandemic, the sharp deterioration of Sino-American relations has defined American politics and policy in the past year, with important implications for Japan. To help us understand the consequences for Japan-US relations and Asia we are happy to welcome Ambassador Ichiro Fujisaki.
