Summary of the Symposium:

The Japan-ROK relationship is on the brink of a new era. Both nations can significantly contribute to peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific region and the creation of a sustainable society by deepening multifaceted cooperation. Specifically, there is a growing expectation for new collaborative relationships between Japan and South Korea in the field of economic security. By leveraging our respective strengths, we can address common challenges in the Indo-Pacific region, particularly in areas such as strengthening supply chain resilience of semiconductor and battery production, research collaborations in AI and biotechnology, and collaboration in other cutting-edge technologies that enhance sustainability.

In this context, to deepen exchanges between Japan and South Korea and explore common issues and solutions, the Economic Security Research Program (ESRP) and the Initiative for Global Security and Energy Transition at RCAST, The University of Tokyo, welcome faculty members from the Economic Security Cluster at the Institute for Future Strategy (IFS), Seoul National University, to co-host a symposium titled "Japan-ROK Economic Security Symposium: Semiconductor, AI, and Sustainable Technologies."
