What's next for the Asia-Pacific?

"Today's special edition of the globalist we are going to focus on asia and what two thousand and twenty one might hold for the region. The obvious answer might seem and will hopefully be almost by definition what with one thing and another a vast improvement but even when asia does not find itself at the epicenter of a global health crisis it remains a complicated part of the world bringing their hostages to fortune to this look ahead to ages. Next twelve months are monocle. Hong kong bureau chief. James chambers monica's. Tokyo bureau chief. Fiona wilson a little later on monaco's bangkok correspondent gwen. Robinson will join us. But first to james and fiona fiona. Let's start with you. In japan as we mentioned in that introduction a new prime minister in office seeking to fill the big shoes and follow the tough act of shinzo are has yet figured out. What kind of prime minister he's going to be is a very good question. I mean i think he's been quite difficult for serger. Falling shinzo obey. Shinzo abe's for all his faults. You know longest serving prime minister in japanese history. So you go quiet trot record. He knows how to win elections. And you know. He survived an awful lot of ups and downs. Scandals also had to deal with the pandemic and ultimately how to deal with illness as well so yeah so quite challenging to come into that role. He started off pretty well. I think his ratings quite good. But i think as people have seen ways handled the pandemic Impressed is ratings have dropped. There's also the issue about the olympics. Will it happen waiting to happen. And i think so. Go really backing this. Huge domestic tourism tourism campaign encouraging. People around the country has gone down pretty badly although it has to be said Tens of millions of people have been guy around the country so they liked that bit of it. But so i think it's quite a tough time for him and interesting. He has to have an election by next autumn. And i think he's in for a pretty rough ride few under just to follow that up. You did the mention the oh word. If there is one thing that japan hopes it can look forward to in two thousand and twenty one it is the two thousand twenty Tokyo postponed because of the obvious right now on new year's day. How likely do they look. It really depends on you. Talk to to be honest. The government would love it to happen. They really wanted to happen dog to the saying we absolutely have to vaccinate everyone. And that's not guaranteed yet. Japan's rollout of vaccinations will be in the spring. And they say you know. We'll have everyone backs in asia by the summer. And if not. I think they are going to have a problem on their hands. There are so many vested interest in the olympics in definitely. The government is under pressure from tv companies. Advertises they want it to happen. Population is still quite lukewarm. I think many people feel it puts this unnecessary pressure on the country. At a time. When is trying to deal with the pandemic. we're still dealing with that joins in hong kong or bring you in now. It being new year's day let's at least out Attempting optimism As we were just discussing. Japan has one great big blue ribbon event to look forward to hopefully in two thousand and twenty one. Two thousand and twenty was a tough year for hong kong for the same reasons. It was a tough year for everybody but for other reasons. Besides is there anything in particular vet. People in hong kong are looking forward to this year. Yes well we've had a rough couple of years here in hong kong so You know when you've hit rock awesome. Which i think that's not hong kong. Has i mean the only way to go his up. So i guess people are looking at s- an economic recovery an a return to business as usual in terms of an making money and getting on that side of things but In looking ahead the the rest of the year. I mean there are few big dates to To look forward to the the first one would be at the end of this month on the polls in january when the the uk's visa essentially for the hong kong people comes into play and up to three million on congas could suddenly decamp to britain. So if that happens if the floodgates opened not lovely be a huge event we've oils essentially being stuck in vung most of twenty twenty so It's been difficult to town at the moments How big that exodus will be. And there's no no re- odds on dejean that which you know. Every time i do meet with hong kong peasant they do generate trying to ask me once. Lights live in the uk Just like an schooling an election. Step in where they should live. What's baath liken. Is it better than oxford as there is. There is a genuine interest. But i guess we're waiting to see how many people actually all through with all of the with these These moves

The Economic Legacy Of Shinzo Abe

"I WANNA start with trade because so many other countries have kind of close themselves off from trade. In recent years I mean the US famously under president trump pulled out of the trans-pacific partnership trade deal with all these other countries including Japan at the start of his presidency, and then of course, he also launched trade wars raise terrorists raised other barriers to trade, but Shinzo Abby come to the opposite for Japan. Didn't he he absolutely did under Japan became the world's biggest promoter of trade agreements signed a big trade agreement with the EU and managed to keep the trans-pacific partnership going despite trump having withdrawn the United States So essentially, ave became the standard bearer of free trade or at least for trade agreements. The reasons for pursuing all these trade agreements are of course to open up markets for Japanese exports but also through. Japan to foreign imports to put pressure on hidebound unproductive. Japanese. Industries especially, the agricultural industry force them to modernize and increase productivity. Yeah. No, there's There's a specific economic challenge I want to ask you about that Japan faces because I think it's a challenge that a lot of other countries are paying attention to to see how Japan deals with it because they also might face a future in which they. Have to deal with it, and it's that Japan's population is aging the average age is rising, and that makes it harder for the Japanese labor force to grow over time because there may not be enough young people to offset the older people who are retiring and leaving the labor force. So what did I do to confront that challenge and bring people into the Japanese labor force? He did basically two things. Number One, he tried to increase women's participation in the labor force number two, he tried to get more immigrants to come work in Japan and buzzers things by the way to be clear before a came in both of those things had been sort of stagnant for years. It wasn't much immigration and women faced a lot of barriers community labor force right? Right women had been increasing their labor force participation gradually. But this really accelerated under ave as for immigrants it had immigration had been really low before ave and then sharply accelerated under him. Okay. Let let's take those intern. Then because those are both things that other countries are also grappling with. So what specifically did obey due to lower barriers for women to enter the Japanese labor force? Well, one of the barriers is that daycare is really hard to find an expensive. In Japan. So the administration built many daycare centers although now so many women are going into the workforce that the supply has difficulty keeping up with the demand, but he built a lot more centers. He also expanded parental leave policies dramatically to make it easier for parents to go take care of kids for while, and then come back to their old jobs in addition, he leaned on companies to to. Hire, more women. He forced companies to disclose how many women they were hiring including managerial positions, and then companies that hired more women would get preferential awards of government contracts. So that was another powerful tool. Okay and what about to encourage more immigration? He did two things basically number one for skilled immigrants. They made a fast track to permanent residency which made it easier to come you know live and work. In Japan, if you had some sort of skills number two, he created a new program which was called a guest worker program, but is really an immigration program because it has a path to permanent residency and so that's for more sort of unskilled labor. Yeah and another big part of it as a gender was to put in place this team at the Japanese central bank that would use aggressive monetary policies. To really stimulate the economy and to get the Japanese economy growing fast enough that people in companies would be spending enough money to raise inflation in Japan up to two percent a year after years of low inflation and even prices falling because people were not spending very much money. So we're those monetary policies successful in your opinion they were. So the Central Bank printed a bunch of money it bought a large. Bunch of assets including the country's stock market however this. Failed to raise inflation too desire to percent target even though it got the country out of deflation. Target and there's a number of other ways in which sort of grease the wheels of financing for Corporate Japan that probably helped and so monetary policy even though they didn't hit that inflation target did help a lot.

"Your Shahida Suda as the country's new prime minister on Monday. 71 year old Mr Suder was overwhelmingly elected as the leader of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, replacing Shinzo Abe has dominated Japanese politics for the past eight years. Mr was expected to serve until the end of next year, but announced suddenly he was stepping down last month, pleading poor health. There's now concerned that Japan could be about to return to what became known as revolving door politics when the country changed Prime Minister's almost every year, Rupert Wingfield Hayes reports. Yeah. You see that pit shuttle get this's something No one would have predicted even a few weeks ago. 71 year old Yoshida super being proclaimed leader of Japan's all powerful Liberal Democratic Party. And by default, the country's new prime minister. Mr Sugar is not known for his charisma or his oratory. And as he made his rather ponderous victory speech, you can hear why you know anybody. Ronnie. Still cocaine. I want to break down bureaucratic divisions invested interests, he says on the blind adherence to president indication to form a cabinet that will work hard for the people. That takes a kike Agos, Cary Most Japanese, No, Mr Sugar as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's long serving grim faced spokesman Up till now. He has always been a backroom guy. A fixer. He has none of the charm or diplomatic skills. Mr Abba used TTO win over President Donald Trump. But according to those who know him like economists and long term Tokyo resident Yes, Bacall, Mr Sugar brings other attributes to the game. Here is a man who gets up at five o'clock in the morning. Does 100 sit ups and then reads all the newspapers and by 6 30. He's starting meetings right with business people with advisers, you know, with outside economists, he absorbs like a sponge and wants to get things done for the country. He's not interested in any of the glitz or blink that comes with war nongovernment. The problem for Mr Suder. Is he has no mandate from the Japanese people. His elevation to the top job was a stitch up by L. V P. Party bosses in smoke filled back rooms. Perhaps because of that much is being made of Mr Segers Humble background. The son of a strawberry farmer, he worked in a cardboard factory to pay his way through college. He's certainly very different from most of Japan's recent prime ministers like Mr Abbott, the silent of a powerful political dynasty, but in the scheming world of Japanese politics Rashid, a circus. Humble origins could also be his undoing. According to Professor Koichi Nakano of Tokyo's Sophia University. Mr Silva comes from a humble background. He really doesn't have his own power base. You know, he doesn't belong to any faction on DH. He actually, you know, Rose to power because he was Mr B's preferred choice on the party bosses rally behind him, You know, emergency situation. But once the emergency situation is gone, and once the party bosses study realized that they're not getting all they wanted. I'm sure there's going to be past trouble. They're both from

Before Resigning, Prime Minister Makes A Final Push To Strengthen Japan's Military

"Abe, Japan's longest serving prime minister, is stepping down this week after eight years in office. With his career ending he has made a final push to strengthen Japan's military. As NPR's Anthony Koon reports from Seoul. That push could affect the balance of power in Asia. At a press briefing last month to announce his resignation, Arbet said the country faces and increasingly harsh security environment for North Korea has greatly improved its ballistic missile capabilities. He said he questioned if it's enough just to be able to intercept those missiles. And later suggested Japan also needs a missile arsenal as a deterrent. That could alter the security landscape in Asia. Sheila Smith, the Japan expert at the Council on Foreign Relations, points out that at the moment, Japan is the only country in Northeast Asia that does not maintain ballistic missiles. One of Bob's career long goals has been to throw off post World War two restrictions on Japan's military. He failed to revise Japan's constitution in which Japan gives up the right to wage war. But in 2015, he did push through legislation allowing Japan to deploy troops overseas in support of allies. At the time. He explained it like this. I know From tomorrow, no more. Let us no longer turn a blind eye to the changes in the environment and remain idle said he urged Japanese to be more confident. They also oversaw the making of Japan's first aircraft carriers since World War two President Trump boarded one of them on a visit to Japan last year and praised his host. I want to thank my friend. And your prime minister. Is an extraordinary man. His commitment to improving Japan's defense capabilities. Which also advances the security of the United States of America. President Trump is questioned the need to protect wealthy allies like Japan, who he says don't pay their fair share of defense costs. Matsuhisa Sato, a lawmaker with the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, says that even before Trump, Japan knew that the U. S was weary from decades of foreign wars, almost taken taking a soldier's gotta move. No Sekai. No case took President Obama said that the U. S is going to stop being, the world's policeman says, and the lawmaker added the trend of countries taking more responsibility for their own defence will continue. Regardless of who the new U. S president is Washington in Tokyo insist their alliance remains ironclad. But doubts about America's commitment are driving the Japanese debate about missile defense. Sheila Smith of the Council on Foreign Relations, says this represents a shift in Japanese people's thinking they've grown up with the U. S. Japan Alliance says the you know like the framework within which Japan thinks about its security. They don't have A conversation. I've never really had a thought process in their public policy debate that says So, what do we do if the alliance doesn't work? Former defense official Kyoji Ah Nagasawa argues that Japan now faces twin risks in its alliance with the US home Tonight. One risk, he says, is that the U. S. Might abandon Japan thie. Other growing risk, he says, is that the U. S. May drag Japan into an unnecessary conflict, for example, with China He says Japan should focus on diplomatic solutions such as mediating between Washington and Beijing, rather than seeking new weapons. The outcome of Japan's internal debate on missile defense will become clear by year's end. When Shinzo Abe successor and his government roll out a new policy. Anthony Kun, NPR news soul

The euro, 1.1909 against the dollar. The yen one of 5.87 Nathan Karen, we begin with the final night of the Republican National Convention where President Trump look to stoke fear about Joe Biden in the White House. We have spent the last four years Reversing the damage Joe Biden inflicted over the last 47 years president spoke from the South Lawn of the White House in front of about 1500 supporters sitting nearly shoulder to shoulder almost non warm, asks. The president called Biden a Trojan horse for socialism and painted his first term as an unqualified success. The president's remarks, like others this week, also addressed the issue of race. I have done more in three years for the black community than Joe Biden has done in 47. Here's the president's speech was the second longest in history, though he largely sidestepped the pandemic. He mentioned Joe Biden by name 41 Times, casting the former vice president as a puppet of the left. Joe Biden is weak. He takes his marching orders from liberal. Hypocrites who drive their cities into the ground while fleeing far from the scene of the records. President Trump made just a glancing reference to protests this weekend. Kenosha, Wisconsin, while reminding supporters what's at stake this November. This is the most important election in the history of our country. The acceptance speech wrapped up with fireworks on the National Mall, with some spelling out Trump and 2020. The speech appeared aimed at making the election a referendum on Joe Biden instead of the incumbent president. We get more from Bloomberg White House reporter Mario Parker, He looked to differentiate himself from Joe Biden on crime, immigration trade. He also kind of alluded to unrest in Kenosha, Chicago. Without really talking about the root cause of some of President Trump Look to paint Biden as a Socialist with a speech offering a stark choice for voters, according to Iona College professor Jeannie's A. No. They're presenting such vastly different pictures of reality. You have the president out there acting as if he's not president of the United States and the violence that's going on in places like Wisconsin. Has nothing to do with somebody else's problem in somebody else's fault, and he's going to be elected and fix that right. And then you have the Democrats with their own view as to how things were going, so I'm just struck by how different if you watch these two events, how different the reality is. President also misrepresented some abidance positions, most notably on immigration and energy policy. Rick Davis is a political contributor for Bloomberg and former campaign manager for John McCain will be a lot of debate over what was and wasn't an exaggeration. Or, as the president likes to call hyperbole. I did find one thing in the speech that I think everybody in the country agrees with both Republicans and Democrats. And that is, he said that this is the most important election in the history of our country. And I have absolutely no doubt that's gonna find unanimous consent more inside an analysis on the president's speech 10 minutes from now when we speak with Greg failure, chief U. S policy strategist at a GF investments, But first we have political news out of Japan. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is stepping down. The resignation is due to health reasons. And it brings new questions about stability in Japan, Herewith Maura's Bloomberg's Isabel Reynolds in Tokyo before I came into office, we had a series of six prime ministers in his many years, but he brought a degree of stability is the top and he brought this focus on the economy. He brought in things like unprecedented monetary easing, He weaken bien and that have Japan's export is so there was stability. People knew what to expect from Abby. The problem is, we don't quite know who's going to succeed him on what to expect from them. Shinzo Abe suffers from all sort of colitis, a condition that's worse and by stress. Stocks in Japan fell on the news. With the Nikkei ending the day down. Nearly wantedto have percent back.

We'll look at volunteerism you're listening to the world. I'm Carol hills. This is the world are you hoping to get a break this summer, perhaps do some traveling well for some vacationers mixing tourism in volunteering is an increasingly popular option volunteerism as some call. It is a growing part of the travel industry with many travelers looking to spend time helping out in overseas. Orphanages they love to go and hug little kids and hold infants and teach children English and all kinds of things that's Amy Castillo, host of tiny spark a podcast about international aid and development Costello says volunteering in an overseas. Orphanage isn't always what it seems many of these children who are in orphanages actually have living parents these are kids many times for whether their parents have died or not have been traumatized. And so there's very valid questions about whether it makes sense to have a short term untrained, unskilled. Volunteer work with these children closely for a week or two and then disappear. Or whether they should have trained professionals dealing with these traumatized children. But of course, money's hard to come by for a lot of these organizations. And so they rely on volunteer staff rather than having donors fund paid positions by professionals. Let's hear from Sophie, oh Tian day. She works for heart.

"I'm Marco werman. This is the world. Good to have you here this Wednesday, Russia's Vladimir Putin and Turkey's wretched type era one met in Moscow today and Syria was at the top of their agenda. Putin told reporters later that he and air Do on discuss ways to stabilize the Syrian conflict. The two strong men have not always seen either. I regarding Syria Turkey has at times been more aligned with the us but ever since President Trump's signaled that he wants US troops out of Syria and demanded protection for America's Kurdish allies their turkeys been more inclined to turn to Putin to talk strategy in Bremmer is a writer and foreign policy commentator who heads the Eurasia group, a political risk research and consulting firm in what is rhetoric tie of everyone need from Vladimir Putin. He needs some sort of understanding that Turkish presence on the ground in Syria will be tolerated and that they can a limit the operating capabilities. Of the Kurds on the ground who they consider to be the Turks due to be a terrorist organization. So let's put a pin in weather. Putin will give everyone that security cover for a moment because at the start of their meeting today Latimer. Putin addressed everyone as dear friend. So let's dig into how their relationship is. How have a friend is heir to want to put in a lot better than it was. I mean Turkey is barely an ally of the United States right now in terms of like interests in the region type of political institutions inside Turkey is becoming affectively authoritarian state. I mean, they're real problems with the NATO relationship, but Russia and Turkey actually today get on pretty well. It's important economic relationship. Lots of Russian tourists that actually go to Turkey and a fair amount of interest insecurity in the region. And in fact, even you have the Turks trying to buy Russian components for their military operations, and as a NATO ally, that's kind of unheard of. Right. But in. Speaks to the important relationship that Putin and Arte one have managed to cobble together. So how would you describe the security zone that aired on wants in northern Syria? What what's the point the point would be both a permanent presence of the Turks on the ground that can't be threatened? It allows them to defend their border and to ensure that there is not movement of arms or individuals that they can't control again, including those Kurds on both sides of the border. And it also is a base of operations where the Turks can launch against Kurds in Syria. If they so choose, and certainly they've been moving in that direction. So when a in wretched type air to one, and we got these two strongmen very type A when they get into a room together. Do they play? Nice nice. As it more pit bulls and beating chests I've in both the answer is both and depends on when you catch him. I mean, look when when that Russian military jet was shot out of the sky by the Turks in two thousand fifteen so in less than four years ago that relationship went from hero to zero literally overnight. I mean, they were friendly. There was a robust economic set of relations diplomatic relations were fine. And suddenly, they were it was complete blockade, you know, pretty much overnight. And that was an enormous that reflects an enormous amount of arrogance on the part of both of these leaders who never can be wrong about anything and their advisers can't really get them off the ledge. I mean, you know, Erta one famously just blows his top people you remember, DAV? Devos when he got angry at journalists stormed off and left, right. Just took off and said, I'm having none of this and had rapturous support when he showed up Putin. Of course, keeps world leaders waiting. He left. I remember Marco left waiting for almost an hour. Once the pope the Queen, right? I mean, and that's the power play. When you have two older men that behave like that in positions of power this. It's obvious that they're either going to be completely best friends or the relationship is going to be flying disaster. And right now, it's it's on the friendly side. This is a budding bromance right now. And I'm sure it'll go fine until it is in Bremmer has the Eurasia group and is a frequent writer on US foreign policy. Thank you. Ian next. President Putin also met this week with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to talk about the curl islands which both Russia and Japan have claimed for decades now since World War Two, basically. But the culture on the islands that has elements from both countries Charles Maine's was just at Sakhalin island, which is nearby the carols. This is what he saw going to this place traveling around the island. You can see these remnants of Japanese culture old graveyard, some some architectural pieces around the island, but essentially just get this reminded of this shifting fortunes of empire. I mean, you have this territory that was part of imperial Japan that was part of SARS Russia later Soviet rule. And you know, all these wars, all these treaties. They've shaved the island's history. And they've also carried lives, of course in their wake. So people like must Yosi Suharto. Three. It was just sort of. He's a suckling resident who's ethnically Japanese. He was born there raised in Japanese controlled part of Sakhalin. And when he's seven years old that all changes. So we'd forces retook the island in after the closing days of World War Two, of course, then taking the nearby Carrillo islands as well. And so young he adapts he learns Russian and he later joins the Soviet army to guard against the Japanese. Is joe? So what's my saying there and he's speaking Russian speaking Russian? Yeah. So he he's saying essentially that when he was a service when he was serving in the Soviet army. He said, you know, they used to have these drills, and they make all these jokes saying the Japanese were coming from over there and these practice drills, and they say, what do you mean? He's coming. They're coming. Look there's one right next to us. And he'd say, you know, they'd all joke about that. Because of course, here's this Japanese guy among these Soviet soldiers. So the Russians who support the claim to these islands. There's a group that seems interested in the business opportunities like professor surrogate crooked pinko who seems to be holding onto Soviet values. What did you hear from him? Well, yeah. I mean, these days, of course, you talk to locals there. They like to tout Sakhalin's growing economy and integration in the region. But it's important to point on this a long way from the days when it was a Soviet territory that was closed outsiders. So Sergei Prokopcuka. He's a professor at suckling state university, which is. Let's professor Prokop incurs saying that you know, he was he was part of the Soviet Union. They were developing the city's factories on suckling and people who came to work and live there. You know, when he was a schoolboy, for example, he was not interested at all if they had some relations with Japan or not. So let's come back to the curl islands. This other set of islands being disputed today by Russia, and Japan, they're kind of to the east of the Sakhalin islands. What are the stakes around the curl islands? This is kept the two sides at loggerheads for over seventy years. Now, what's been interesting in this past several years Shinzo obey the Japanese Prime minister, Vladimir Putin Russian president, and that many many times trying to figure out a way out of this is trying to sort of centrally find an agreement somehow this is something of a mission for Mr. obey his in its with good recent. His father was a Japanese politician who was then at one point the foreign minister back in the early eighties. A he tried to negotiate this deal. Couldn't do it in failed. His grandfather was also involved with this. Back in the nineteen sixties, and essentially, so it's kind of this family attempt to her as Mr. obeys been trying to find a way to settle this issue. The problem is that he's fighting against Moore nationalist forces within Japan who don't want to cede any of this territory to Russia. Why does Vladimir Putin wants this territory? I mean what's his game here? First of all he's interested to degree in some kind of agreement because there's opportunities to develop the far east Russia's made this imperative in their their policies to try and develop the economy in the far east, and he would certainly be interested in investment projects from Japanese major business companies on the other hand. Mr Putin has also made restoring the Russian empire part of his kind of a major theme through his rule and look at for example, after the annexation of Crimea. This is of course territory that once belonged to Ukraine that the Russians have an in two thousand fourteen after that, Mr Putin's ratings went through the roof here at Rome, and it's interesting these days to see that public opinion is highly again. Against the giving away any territory back to Japan, we had protests by nationalist Moscow is Mr. obey and Mr Putin met here in Moscow the other day with the rest and just anecdotally when I was in Sakhalin just talk to people, and they would say time, and again that they were against this idea of giving back any territory to Japan, Charles Maine's in Moscow. Thanks very much for telling us what you found out in the Sakhalin islands. Appreciate it. Thanks Markelle so disputes between countries can also come home to roost at home for those governments the government in Greece was on the receiving end of that just a few days ago..
