Japan and the United States excel in many fields of technological development, especially robotics, healthcare, energy, and disaster risk reduction. These technologies are becoming increasingly relevant to foreign policy, as nations wrestle with the political and societal impacts of globalization, economic integration, environmental degradation, and—for many countries—aging populations. Looking ahead, a key challenge for the allies is to develop strategies to employ these technological skills for positive effect on the international stage.
