*Report on The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership/Abe Fellowship Program 25th Anniversary Symposium

The Symposium was attended by around 350 guests including diplomats, researchers, and scholars. Fifteen Abe Fellows, experts in fields such as economics and political science, discussed changes that have occurred in governance, security, trade, and international relations over the last 25 years. The recent U.S. elections have highlighted a growing international climate replete with contradictions, disintegration, and misunderstanding and a United States retreating from the international area. Simultaneously, it is also providing an opportunity for Japan to take a leadership role in such fields as trade, security and regional governance.
