MP Liz Truss, who served as Prime Minister of the U.K. until last October, is coming to Japan for an international forum to be held this month. The Economic Security Program team from the Rule-making Strategies Division, Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology (RCAST) will invite her to give a lecture.
In her presentation, MP Truss will discuss what kind of problems the U.K. recognizes as economic security risks and what policies they implement in the face of the increasing geopolitical risks in recent years, and how Western democracies should cooperate with one another in the future.
She will also discuss with Mr. Akira Igata, a Project Lecturer at RCAST, the various issues the UK and Japan are facing, including supply chain resilience, fostering and protection of sensitive technology, and cybersecurity.
