We are happy to invite you to a TUJ Korea Japan Group/Business and Economics Group discussion with Maria Toyoda of Villanova University and Council on Foreign Relations/Hitachi Fellow in Japan.


As a country which has eschewed the use of military force since 1945, Japan's international strategy has relied heavily on economic diplomacy. Its development aid (ODA) has been a key aspect of its relations with Asia and other continents. Maria, who has been based at the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) since January will brief us on how this strategy is developing.
