This week we look ahead to Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to the United States. Longtime U.S.-Japan hands CSIS Japan Chair Dr. Michael Green and CSIS Simon Chair Matthew Goodman join the podcast to describe the state of the U.S.-Japan alliance and preview the agenda for the summit. Then we turn to the future of U.S. defense collaboration and security in Asia. CSIS Japan Chair Fellow Zack Cooper caught up with CSIS Kissinger Chair Dr. Kathleen Hicks and Dr. Michael Green to discuss their work on federated defense in Asia and countering coercion.
We also review the region’s news, profile Wang Qishan, and share our One to Watch. Hosted by Colm Quinn. Audio edited by Samuel Ellis. Produced by Jeffrey Bean.
