Event description
Not since WWII have we seen a tension raise so high between South Korea and Japan. Is key US interest at stake? What's next for the region?

About this Event

On July 1st, 2019, the Japanese government countered by announcing its sanctions on the three types of semiconductor materials exported to South Korea. Additionally, the Japanese government excluded South Korea from its trade whitelist, which led to an unprecedented trade war between the two countries. The Japanese government claims that the South Korean government did not comply with export control security regulations and ignored the Japanese government’s request to have a bilateral trade dialogue for three years.

What profound influences would the Japan-South Korea trade conflicts have on the world? This time, the China Development Think Tank (CDSTT) proudly presents its academic panel focuses on the trade disputes between Japan and South Korea on November 13th, 2019 at Jack Morton Auditorium. The panel will discuss the factors and causes of the disputes, the impact of disputes on both countries’ economies and security, and the possible responses from the United States and China. We will be having Dr. Henry Nau, current GWU professor and former National Security Council Senior Staff, Ms. Shihoko Goto, Senior associate of Wilson Center, Mr. Yonho Kim, Associated Director of the Institute for Korean Study of the Elliott School of International Affairs, and Mr. Scott Snyder, Council of Foreign Relations as our guests of the evening.
