The U.S.-Japan bilateral alliance represents one of the strongest anchors of security, prosperity, and innovation in the world, and the two countries share strong relationships with like-minded countries in other key regions for enhanced national and economic security.

Climate change is driving a shift in the fundamental economics of the Middle East.  Gulf nations are actively exploring and investing in new sources of economic growth that can sustain their societies in a world that is no longer as dependent on fossil fuels.  The shift has opened a door for new collaborations between nations.

The U.S., Japan, and Israel share values, interests, and aspirations that can form the core of minilaterals and new structures of cooperation around technologies that have the potential to transform global markets and challenges.  These include alternative energy, quantum computing, AI, silicon biology, new materials, informatics, and many more.  K3 Council at Japan Society was launched to examine this partnership.

This program, jointly hosted between the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens and the K3 Council featuring experts from each nation, will take a closer look at the shifting terrain in the Middle East and how these three countries can collaborate more closely together and with other nations to achieve both regional and global goals.
