State-Firm Relations and Economic Security: International Comparisons of U.S., China, EU, Australia, and South America

Economy security has recently become a central issue of concern for governments and businesses around the world. Various governments have created new strategies, institutions, and tools to address these new challenges. However, the private sector involvement is critical in the effective implementation of these government policies.

Under these circumstances, the Economic Security Research Program (ESRP) at RCAST, The University of Tokyo and Law and Geoeconomics will convene a symposium titled _State-Firm Relations and Economic Security: International Comparisons of U.S., China, EU, Australia, and South America_, with the support of Helsinki Geoeconomics Week and the Embassy of Finland.

This symposium will bring together experts on economic security from the U.S., China, EU, and South America to compare how state-firm relations differ in regions around the world, especially given the rise of economic security risks and opportunities. This will allow for the sharing of best practices as well as identifying potential areas of cooperation among countries.

Japan-U.S. Economic Security Policy Coordination: Development and Protection of Critical and Emerging Technologies

Economic security has become one of the top priority areas for policy-makers in both Japan and the United States. Furthermore, there is now a general consensus between the two countries regarding the perception of shared economic security risks as well as in areas where cooperation among allies and partners in addressing these risks would be mutually beneficial.

However, there are areas of specific policy coordination that require further discussion to promote an effective U.S.-Japan economic security cooperation. The development and protection of critical and emerging technologies is a top concern among them, where coordination and cooperation in using numerous policy tools would be effective in furthering the national interests of both countries. These include: subsidies; joint R&D; visa regulations; export controls; inbound and outbound investment screening mechanisms; and cyber security.

In order to discuss these issues, the Economic Security Research Program (ESRP) at RCAST, The University of Tokyo and Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA will co-host a symposium titled "Japan-U.S. Economic Security Policy Coordination: Development and Protection of Critical and Emerging Technologies" on March 4th. This symposium will feature speakers from the U.S. who have been at the forefront of practice and research in these issues in the government, legal practice, academia, think tank, and business sectors.

Towards a New Era of Japan - Central and Eastern Europe Collaboration (CEE): Economic Security, Counter-Disinformation, and Taiwan

The relationship between Japan and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) has been one of the underexplored areas in international politics. However, the threat perception and foreign policy of the CEE states are changing due to the dramatic shift in the global security environment. This change has opened up new possibilities for cooperation between Japan and CEE countries.

ESRP is proud to invite three speakers from the European Values Center for Security Policy (EVC), a Prague-based think tank and the only European think tank with a permanent presence in Taiwan. The three speakers will discuss "Economic Security," "Disinformation," and "Taiwan" from the perspective of the CEE countries. This will be followed by a moderated discussion and a Q&A with the audience.
