18:00-18:50 Dec 8 EST / 8:00-8:50 Dec 9 JST

Roundtable Discussion*2

19:00-20:15 Dec 8 EST / 9:00-10:15 Dec 9 JST


We are now almost a year into the global pandemic and the largest global economic shock since the Great Depression. Coronavirus has created both changes and challenges to the geopolitical landscape in the GZERO world.

What are the impacts and implications of the coronavirus pandemic? How does the outcome of the US presidential election affect the global geopolitical landscape, including key bilateral relationships such as that between the US and Japan? What are the proper roles of governments, international institutions, and corporate executives in the post-coronavirus world?

Guiding Questions

Once the pandemic recedes and a new US administration is in place, what are the changes to the GZERO world we should watch for in 2021 and beyond? What will they mean to your company/sector/country?

How will the "Free and Open Indo-Pacific" strategy affect the foreign policies of countries such as the US, Japan, and Australia? How should the new leaderships in both the US and Japan view this strategy? What does it mean to your company/sector/country?
