Event description

Description

This has been a period of rapid change in economic relationships. This session on Japan and Evolving Trade in the Asia Pacific will address those changes. It will include topics such as the conclusion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the U.S. departure, and its reincarnation as the CPTPP. It will discuss irritants and possibilities in the trading relationship between the United States and Japan, as well as prospects for other regional initiatives, such as the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) or warming ties between Japan and China.
