Why Japan Matters for the United States: Cleveland

October 18, 2016 @ 5:45 pm - 8:30 pm

cleveland-skylineThe 2016 U.S. Presidential Election has ignited renewed interest among the Washington policy community to reinstate the benefits and importance of U.S. engagement in Asia. How does Asia serve U.S. security and economic interests? What are the costs and benefits of U.S. security alliances in Asia, including the U.S.-Japan alliance? What does Ohio have at stake in Asia and in the U.S.-Japan relationship? To answer these questions and present important data and facts about U.S. relations with Asia and Japan, Sasakawa USA brought together security and economics experts from the Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) and the East-West Center in Washington (EWCW) for an event co-hosted by the Cleveland Council on World Affairs.

The event included panel discussions on topics such as the strategic importance of U.S.-Japan relations, U.S. economic interests in Asia and Japan, and Japan’s footprint in Ohio. A dinner dialogue and round robin audience Q&A followed.
