GR Japan is proud to start 2022 with an IPF seminar and webinar to discuss the political outlook for the new year. We will be joined by true experts who will share their insights into what to expect on the political front in Japan for 2022.

Will the Kishida Cabinet be able to sustain its current high level of popular support to and over the House of Councillors’ elections in July? What is the dynamic likely to be between the current coalition and the Ishin party, given the latter’s rise in the elections this year? Which key domestic and international events will likely shape Japan’s policies? Please join us to discuss these and many more questions over breakfast (or remotely) with our political insider guests.
