Next Steps in U.S.-Japan Economic Relations


Starts: 8:00 AM
Ends: 9:30 AM

Ambassador Robert Holleyman will participate in the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ (“CSIS”) event “Next Steps in U.S.-Japan Economic Relations”. This event will be moderated by CSIS Senior Vice President for Economics Matthew Goodman, with Former Acting Deputy USTR Wendy Cutler, Cabinet Secretary for Public Affairs in the Prime Minister’s Office of Japan Noriyuki Shikata, and Former Assistant USTR Charles Freeman rounding out the panel. They will participate in  a high-level discussion on the U.S.-Japan trade relationship in a bilateral and multilateral context. 

In April 2021, the Biden administration and then-Prime Minister Suga of Japan announced the Competitiveness and Resilience (“CoRe”) Partnership as a way to carry forward the U.S.-Japan economic relationship. How can the Biden Administration and the new Kishida administration take forward this new partnership, as well as the U.S.-Japan Trade Agreement and Digital Trade Agreement of 2019? How can Tokyo and Washington work together to promote high standard trade rules in the Indo-Pacific region and leverage the power of the U.S.-Japan alliance to tackle broader regional issues, including economic competition and coercion from China?
