On 3 November 2020, American voters will vote after the most eventful year in American history since 1945. Besides the Covid-19 pandemic, the sharp deterioration of Sino-American relations has defined American politics and policy in the past year, with important implications for Japan.

To help us understand the consequences for Japan-US relations and Asia we are happy to welcome Ambassador Ichiro Fujisaki.

Ambassador Ichiro Fujisaki joined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 1969, and went on to serve as Deputy Director General for Asian Affairs, Political Minister at the Embassy of Japan in Washington, DC, Director General for North American Affairs, Deputy Foreign Minister, and Ambassador to the UN and WTO in Geneva. He served as Ambassador to the United States in 2008 until 2012.

He was distinguished professor and Chairman for International Strategies of Sophia University. He is currently the president of the America-Japan Society and of the Nakasone Peace Institute.
