The Future of Japan-China Relations—Ahead of the G20 Osaka Summit (Prof. Shin Kawashima, The University of Tokyo)

post date : 2019.05.13

With summits between Japan and China resuming last year, Japan-China relations have been improving. Given this, preparations are expected to begin in earnest for President Xi Jinping to visit Japan near the end of June, to coincide with the G20 Osaka Summit. This would be the first visit to Japan by a Chinese president since 2010, and the first visit by President Xi Jinping since becoming president. What developments will occur towards the “new era in Japan-China relations” Prime Minister Abe has called for?


With the effects of China’s Belt and Road Initiative also being a subject of great interest to the international community, the FPCJ has invited Dr. Shin Kawashima, a professor at the Department of International Relations of the Graduate School of Arts and Science at The University of Tokyo and an expert in the history of Chinese diplomacy and international relations in East Asia, to discuss this topic.
