Joe Biden has been declared the winner of the U.S. presidential election, with more than the 270 Electoral College votes needed to secure the presidency after his win in Pennsylvania. In his victory speech, Biden promised to rebuild the nation that has been torn apart by multiple crises and “make America respected around the world again.” How is President-elect Biden preparing for transition into the White House? What does his victory mean for foreign and economic policy in Asia, particularly U.S.-Japan relations? In this webinar, expert speakers discuss Biden’s victory in the U.S. presidential election, the implications for Japan, and the future of U.S.-Japan relations.

Office, Asia Society Policy Institute; former Acting Deputy U.S. Trade Representative Yuichi Hosoya, Professor of International Politics, Keio University Daniel Russel, Vice President, International Security and Diplomacy, Asia Society Policy Institute; former Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs
