Kishida has formally taken office as Japan’s new prime minister, succeeding Yoshihide Suga as leader of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP). Ido Vock in Berlin and the World Review’s new co-host Megan Gibson in London discuss his rise to power with Tokyo-based journalist Kenji Hall.
They cover Kishida’s plans for economic reform, whether Japan’s pacifist constitution could change as the country faces an increasingly assertive China, and the factional jostling within the dominant LDP.
