Seminar Focus: Northeast Asia faces several risks, including geopolitical ones stemming from the DPRK’s nuclear and ballistic missile tests and political tensions among China, Japan, and the ROK (due to historical and territorial issues, and THAAD), and the economic risks of trade protectionism coming from the new Trump Administration in the US. Despite these, economic prospects in Northeast Asia are relatively favorable. Against this backdrop, this Platform Seminar examines the structural issues of Northeast Asian economies (China, the DPRK, Japan, Mongolia, the ROK, and the Russian Far East) and explores the prospects of economic cooperation in the region. Experts from the US, China, Mongolia, the ROK, and Russia join Japanese experts to discuss the potential for various types of economic cooperation, such as via tourism, infrastructure development (including oil and gas), logistics connectivity, and trade and investment. Such cooperation is expected to contribute to trust building and peace and security in the region.
