Asia

For nearly two thousand years, China and Korea have been important neighbors for Japan. Japan's security and prosperity have been closely connected with circumstances on the Asian continent and the Korean peninsula. While the Republic of Korea (ROK) is Japan's most important neighbouring country sharing democracy and other fundamental values, Japan and China cooperate in a “mutually beneficial relationship based on common strategic interests" as the world's second and third largest economies. JIIA conducts various projects on China and the Korean peninsula.
