ASPI Banner Japan

As Asia’s second largest economy and a treaty ally of the United States, Japan holds significant influence in the Asia-Pacific region. ASPI’s Japan work focuses on enhancing cooperation between Japan and other regional actors to promote prosperity, security and sustainability. For instance, ASPI’s Toward a Northeast Asia Carbon Market initiative provides a roadmap for linking carbon markets between Japan, China, and South Korea.

ASPI convenes public events, private roundtables, and strategic dialogues, and contributes expert commentary, analysis, and policy recommendations to further understanding about Japan’s policies and role in the region.
