Thursday, May 11, 2023, 09:00 AM to 10:00 AM EST
In recent years, Japan adopted legislation to develop and implement an “economic security strategy” that includes a significant reorganization of government (the creation of a minister for economic security) and the adoption of new policies to accomplish this task. Its 2022 Economic Security Promotion Act focuses on securing supply chains of critical materials, nondisclosure of patents for security reasons, promoting the development of advanced technologies, and ensuring infrastructure security.
