Speaker: David Pilling
Chair: Janet Hunter
In the 1980s, Japan was supposedly about to take over the world. Since the burst of the bubble in 1990, it has all but slipped from the radar as attention has switched to China. However, its problems, though real, are exaggerated and misunderstood, and Japan remains a key player in the global economy and in global geopolitics.
