RIETI and Australian National University (ANU) have been jointly holding symposiums. Experts from the Asia-Pacific region gather to discuss various issues that are piling up in the increasingly uncertain global economy.

Global Intelligence Series

We invite leading experts from Japan, the United States, Europe, and other Asian countries to give lectures about various global issues including economic security and regional affairs such as the U.S.-China conflict, the situation in the Middle East, the prospects of the Chinese economy, climate change, environmental and energy issues, the post-corona global trade system, supply chain risks, SDGs, etc. Many policy proposals are derived from information collected and discussed in these lectures.
