US-ROK-Japan Trilateral Relations
Rebuilding and Expanding Economic Cooperation
Last August’s historic Trilateral Summit at Camp David cemented the US-ROK-Japan Trilateral Partnership on the global stage. Building upon this diplomatic success, the United States, South Korea, and Japan continue to seek avenues to institutionalize areas for expanded tripartite cooperation. Within the Indo-Pacific region and globally, the three countries have defined a focused agenda for enhancing and strengthening collaboration in supply chain resiliency, critical technologies, and energy security. Closer to home, Southeast Asia may present new opportunities for trilateral engagement. Though challenges remain, this conference examined key areas of economic cooperation that will shape the future of US-ROK-Japan partnership in the years to come.
The conference featured members of the Wilson Center’s 2023 Trilateral Commission, across two panel discussions. The first panel assessed areas of risk and opportunity for trade and supply chain resiliency among the three nations. The second panel explored areas of new growth for the partnership, including addressing the dual challenge of climate and energy policy as well as advancing regional engagement in North and Southeast Asia.
