The "Free and Open Indo-Pacific" vision has been the centerpiece of Japan's foreign policy since the Abe administration, As the war in Ukraine unfolded, there has been growing concern in Japan about a possible "spillover effect" to a wider region, possibly to the Indo-Pacific. Is Japan's Self - Defense Forces, together with its alliance partner, prepared to face security challenges in the region? What developments can we look for in the new National Security Strategy scheduled to be reviewed by the end of this year?
At this critical juncture, we are honored to host General IZUTSU Shunji, Chief of Staff of the Japan Air Self - Defense Force, for a special in-person event in Tokyo.
Please join us to learn from and engage with General IZUTSU.
