Chinese foreign policy and Sino-Japanese relations under Xi Jinping

 Professor Amako Satoshi

China and Japan are neighbouring countries that are closely related to each other culturally, economically and politically. However, in recent years the relationship between the two countries has not been stable, especially in issues related to the Senkaku islands. This public lecture will examine Chinese foreign policy and Sino-Japanese relations under the rule of Xi Jinping from a Japanese viewpoint. In addition, the presenter will provide his own suggestions on Japan’s strategy in reconstructing Sino-Japanese relations.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Please RSVP for this event.
