Recovery & Future Challenges in Asia & the Pacific

Tomorrow, Asian Development Bank President Haruhiko Kuroda is coming to Japan Society to discuss with us over lunch how to achieve a regionally integrated yet globally connected Asia.

However, Joel Rathus of Meiji and Adelaide Universities recently said on East Asia Forum:

"Much has been made of late about the possibility of Japan drawing closer to China. But on the major issues of historical record, trade, and security, Japan’s China policy is unchanged under the DPJ, and is unlikely to change in the near future."

It will be interesting to see what Kuroda predicts the future holds for Asia in light of Japan and China's continuing tensions.
