Russia and Japan: A New Era in Relations
March 10, 2021 — March 11, 2021
11:00 AM—12:00 PM MSK
Online Event Series
The relationship between Russia and Japan is entering a new reality. The coronavirus pandemic has made a dent in their trade turnover, while the departure of Japan’s former prime minister Shinzo Abe—for many years the main driver of closer cooperation with Russia—has left their further rapprochement in doubt.
Important developments are taking place in Asia-Pacific. China is bouncing back from the pandemic and continues to pursue an increasingly assertive foreign policy. The new U.S. administration is intent on preserving America’s global leadership, shoring up its traditional alliances, and containing China and Russia. All of that cannot fail to impact on relations between Moscow and Tokyo.
A new series of online events organized by the Carnegie Moscow Center and featuring leading experts from both countries looked at how Russia and Japan can strengthen their relationship under these new conditions.  
PROGRAM
New Challenges for Russia and Japan in the Evolving Indo-Pacific
ALEXANDER GABUEV, ANNA KIREEVA, KEN JIMBO
MARCH 10, 2021LIVE ONLINE
11:00AM—12:00PM
The Indo-Pacific region isn’t just a growth locomotive of the global economy, it is also a source of danger: this is where the interests of the world’s powers become entangled. Although the main players in the region are still the United States and China, the power balance is largely determined by the strategies of the regional powers.
