After graduating from the University of Tokyo (Faculty of Law) in 1980, he served in Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and observed China’s WTO entry negotiations. He has also been Economic Counsellor at the Embassy in Beijing and METI’s Director for Northeast Asia. He is now one of Japan’s best known and most respected watchers of the Chinese economy.

His latest book, entitled A trade war? – Examining the US-China relationship, was published in July 2017 and has drawn an enthusiastic response in Japan. Mr Tsugami’s lecture will consider China’s economic future, including the potentially divergent trajectories of the ‘old’ and ‘new’ sectors of its economy, as well as the short and longer term interactions between the country’s economy and its position in international politics. There will be an opportunity for questions to Mr. Tsugami.
