Japan Outlook 2022

January 24 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Will 2022 be a year of economic resurgence in Japan or will factors such as COVID restrictions, continued supply chain disruptions, and inflation act as headwinds to growth? Will the new Kishida Administration, which faces an election in the summer, succeed in keeping the pandemic under control while keeping the economy running and opening its borders? What will Japan, together with the US and other allies, do to balance rising Chinese power and influence? How will they support prosperity and peace in Asia?

Please join us at the Japan Society of Northern California’s annual Japan Outlook program on January 24, 4:00-5:30 p.m. Pacific Time (January 25, 9:00-10:30 a.m. Japan Time) to hear experts discuss these and other questions related to the political, economic and security outlook for Japan in the coming year and what this all means to America.

Robert Feldman is currently a Senior Advisor at Morgan Stanley MUFG Securities, where he has worked since 1998. In addition, he is a Professor in the Management of Technology program, at Tokyo University of Science, and is a member of the Policy Committee at the Asia Society Japan. TJ Pempel, Jack M. Forcey Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley, is a prolific author and one of America’s top scholars on Japan and Asia. The conversation will be moderated by Japan Society of Northern California Chair Larry Greenwood.
