Joshua Walker, Global Head of Strategic Initiatives and Japan, Office of the President, Eurasia Group

(The speech and Q & A will be in English)

"Japan's Global Role: A View from Washington"

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's recent summit with U.S. President Donald Trump was portrayed by both leaders as a great success that boosted the alliance, but behind the camaraderie were frustrations over the simmering trade and tech war between Washington and Beijing, and a gap in thinking on issues from agriculture exports to North Korea.

Joshua Walker, global head of strategic initiatives and Japan at Eurasia Group, will come to the FCCJ to discuss the macro-level implications from that meeting, and look forward to next month's G-20 gathering in Osaka. He will look at Abe's global role and his relations with leaders from Russia's Vladimir Putin to Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and the significance of the Japanese premier's reported plan to visit Iran.

He will also discuss Japan's role in a G-Zero world, arguing that its reputation globally has been boosted by political stability at home in the face of populism in the U.S., Europe and beyond.

Walker recently served as the CEO and president of the USA Pavilion of the 2017 World Expo in Astana, Kazakhstan, and was the founding dean of the APCO Institute, a global strategic communications firm. Before entering the private sector, he worked at the U.S. State Department and Defense Department.
