The DSEI Japan Conference explores the relationship between foreign policy, military capability, and developments in key emerging technologies, and their impact on security in the Indo-Pacific, featuring senior government and military leaders from Japan and its global allies.
With another record-breaking increase in the Japanese defence budget, Japan’s engagement with external partners is set to increase dramatically. The revitalisation of their military forces, bringing them to the forefront regional capabilities, necessitates greater engagement with international trading partners. It also poses significant challenges around achieving operational capability in key areas, and ensuring interoperability with existing platforms and allies.
Responding to this new growth, DSEI Japan examined the latest considerations and challenges of delivering security in the Indo-Pacific, including the role of alliances and cooperation both within the region and further afield.
