160 Years of Japanese-German Relations

In 2021, Japan and Germany look back on 160 years of diplomatic relations. On January 24th in 1861, Japan signed a treaty of friendship, trade and navigation with Prussia, which today is considered the beginning of Japanese-German diplomatic relations. Today, both countries are close partners committed to a rules-based, multilateral international order. Based on shared interests and values, Japan and Germany are jointly approaching global challenges and trends such as digitalization, climate change, demographic developments – while currently battling the ongoing pandemic. Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) has long been engaged in and with Japan. Through our offices in Tokyo, Berlin and Brussels, KAS fosters political dialogue and multifaceted cooperation between Germany, Europe and Japan. On the occasion of the 160th anniversary of bilateral relations, KAS together with the Japanese Embassy of Germany will look ahead: How can Japan and Germany move closer to each other in a multilateral context? How does the COVID-19 pandemic affect and accelerate global developments in both countries? What can Japan and Germany learn from and with each other to thrive given the trends of the 21st century? Which formats does that take? In two panel discussions focusing on a strong, resilient and smart future, renowned experts from Japan, Germany and other countries discuss challenges and joint solutions.
