US-Japan Economic Security Policy Implications
Excerpted from "Reshaping US-Japan Economic Security Partnership in the Indo-Pacific," the authors highlight a variety of policy implications of the growing US-Japan economic security relationship.
With the emergence of economic security as a concept in recent years, the US-Japan alliance has entered what is arguably its closest era as both countries increasingly link economics and traditional hard power conceptions of national security. The United States and Japan should continue to emphasize economic security to address shared challenges in the Indo-Pacific driven by a rising China and global risks, such as pandemics and climate change.
