Press Briefing:“Japan-China Relations: Challenges and Prospects”


Prof. Akio TAKAHARA, Graduate Schools for Law and Politics, University of Tokyo


Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda told a press conference following his inauguration, “The security environment in the Asia-Pacific region is undergoing significant changes. In these circumstances, it is essential that we advance foreign and security policies that can robustly respond to the requirements of the times. I believe that the linchpin for such policies is none other than the Japan-US Alliance,” followed by “Another basic stance of the Government is to develop the strategic relationship of mutual benefit with China.” Faced with China’s rising presence in many fields including economy, military, and politics, how will Japan’s new administration get along with the neighboring country? Will bilateral relations, cool since the Senkaku Incident last September, improve? 


FPCJ will invite an expert on contemporary Chinese politics and Japan-China relations, Professor Akio Takahara of the Graduate Schools for Law and Politics, University of Tokyo, to talk about the challenges and prospects for the bilateral relations.



Time & Date: September 27 (Tue), 15:00-16:30


Place: Foreign Press Center/Japan (6th floor, Nippon Press Center Bldg.)


Language: Japanese (with English interpretation)


FPCJ supporting members and embassy representatives may also attend the briefing as observers (admission free).
