July 12, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

On July 12, Sasakawa USA welcomed Major General Hiroyuki Sugai (JASDF), defense and air attaché at the Embassy of Japan in the United States of America, to speak at a Rising Indo-Pacific Security Experts (RISE) event on “The Evolution of the U.S.-Japan Alliance: Reflections from Major General Sugai.” The discussion took place at the Old Ambassador’s Residence at the Embassy of Japan, with the support of the Defense Section of the Embassy of Japan, and was moderated by Jim Schoff, senior director of the US-Japan NEXT Alliance Initiative at Sasakawa USA.

As Major General Sugai prepares to return to Japan, he reflected on the advancements the U.S.-Japan security alliance has made during his three years in Washington, as well as what the two allies can do to further strengthen the alliance to effectively meet the challenges and threats in the Indo-Pacific region. He concluded his remarks by emphasizing the importance of doing the basics right and encouraging young people to enhance their abilities and expertise to meet these challenges. Following this was an engaging discussion with the young members of Sasakawa USA’s RISE, who include graduate students, think tank members, and employees from various government organizations.
