With North Korea firing missiles and tensions soaring in the region, as well as China’s leader, Xi Jinping, consolidating his power, will Prime Minister Abe’s landslide victory in the recent general election lead to reshaping Japan’s political landscape?

Our panel of experts will provide their forecast on Japan and US-Japan business, trade, security and international relations in 2018.
