NOTICE OF CANCELLATION/POSTPONEMENT TOKYO COLLOQUIUM 2020

Mar 2020 - News

“Economic Warfare and Conflict:Challenges to Peace and Stability in Northeast Asia” The Director and the Board of the Toda Peace Institute have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Tokyo Colloquium “Economic Warfare and Conflict: Challenges to Peace and Stability in Northeast Asia” which was due to be held on 6 March. This decision has been taken because of the coronavirus (covid-19) outbreak in Wuhan, China, and the Japanese government’s preparations for what they see as the inevitable spread of the virus to Japan. Many Japanese organisations are limiting or cancelling events that involve large gatherings of people, and the Toda Peace Institute’s strong recommendation, based on the decisions being made by other organisations, is to reschedule the event for a later date. While the Director and Board deeply regret making this decision, they are confident that a new date later in 2020 can be found for the event which has already attracted many registrations. Thank you for your support and we look forward to advising you when a new date has been decided.
