The U.S.-Japan Alliance: Getting Asia Right through 2020
The report outlines the findings of a bipartisan panel of Asia specialists co-chaired by Armitage and Joseph Nye. The report highlights major trends in Asia and provides the panel's comprehensive analysis with security and economic policy recommendations.
In October 2000, Ambassador Armitage and Dr. Nye issued "The United States and Japan: Advancing Toward a Mature Partnership," which specifically aimed at strengthening the bilateral relationship in areas of politics, security, Okinawa, intelligence, economics and diplomacy. "Getting Asia Right through 2020" continues to emphasize the importance of the alliance, but also addresses how the U.S.-Japan alliance could work together to positively influence the future in Asia.
