SPF Japan-U.S Program Cordially Invites You to Attend a Panel Discussion on,
“How Japan Matters for America in the Indo-Pacific”
(Monday, April 15, 2019)

On April 15, the Sasakawa Peace Foundation will host a panel discussion on “How Japan Matters for America in the Indo-Pacific”, celebrating the launch of the 3rd edition of “Japan Matters for America/America Matters for Japan” (JMA/AMJ).

In collaboration with the East West Center, SPF started the JMA/AMJ project in 2009 as a part of “Asia Matters for America” initiative, which has been developed by Dr. Satu Limaye, Director of East West Center in Washington. DC. The JMA/AMJ publication is written in both English and Japanese, and provides readers with information about the bilateral connections between Japan and the U.S. through the alliance, trade, jobs, investment, tourism, education, population, and sister city relationships. Data for the booklet has been collected from extensive research at the state, city, and local levels. Along with the JMA/AMJ booklet, an updated and interactive website on state and congressional district information is also available.

At this event, we will introduce the new edition of JMA/AMJ, and will have a panel discussion on U.S. relationships with the region especially focusing on Japan, Australia and ASEAN. By examining these regional relationships with the U.S., we can also see unique characteristics and similarities through the “Asia Matters for America” series, and the panel will also discuss how Japan, Japan-U.S. relations, and the Japan-U.S. alliance matters in the region.

The panelists will include Dr. Satu Limaye and three Japanese experts of international relations in the Indo-Pacific region; Prof. Mie Oba from Tokyo University of Science, Dr. Ryo Sahashi from University of Tokyo, and Dr. Tomohiko Satake from National Institute for Defense Studies.
