The traditional summit, which was canceled in 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, will bring together senior defense politicians from more than 40 countries around the world in a ‘bubble’ event centered on the Shangri-La Hotel, in Singapore.

The last Japanese prime minister to spearhead the dialogue was Suga’s predecessor, Shinzo Abe, in 2014, while the most recent summit was chaired in 2019 by Singaporean President Lee Hsien Loong.

According to the agenda, the summit will address collaboration in the Asia-Pacific region, environmental threats, and artificial intelligence and new technologies.

These issues will be discused in six plenary sessions on June 5, with a ministerial round table at noon, in addition to bilateral meetings on June 4.

More ministers from Asia, Europe and the Middle East are expected to RSVP to the event in the coming weeks.
