(Hybrid Event) Japan Outlook 2023

    Every January the Japan Society of Northern California hosts Japan Outlook, a program that looks at political, security and economic trends in Japan and prospects for the US-Japan relationship in the coming year. This year will be full of challenges, including a likely recession and tech downturn, rising security threats in Asia, continuing hits on supply chains, food shipments and energy prices due to the Ukraine war and the urgent need to adopt green technologies faster. Never has the US-Japan relationship been more important. This year we will see at least three meetings between our Leaders, culminating in Prime Minister Kishida’s visit to San Francisco for the APEC Leaders Meeting in November, who will guide how our two countries address the significant challenges that 2023 will bring.

    We are delighted to have a very special speaker for the Japan Outlook program this year, State Department Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia Affairs Mark Lambert who will be visiting the Bay Area that week. Secretary Lambert will talk with unparalleled expertise on how the US-Alliance will work to promote peace and prosperity in the Asia Pacific region. Don’t miss this program which Japan Society Chairman Larry Greenwood will moderate.
