Japan PM Kishida To Visit South Korea May 7-8


Japan Prime Minister Kishida is reportedly planning to visit South Korea on May 7-8 for meetings/discussions with South Korean President Yoon. The Japan PM reportedly stated the trip will present an opportunity for a 'frank exchange on the acceleration of ties' between the two countries, according to Kyodo.

  • This trip comes after Yoon's visit to Japan back in March, which was the first visit by a South Korean President in 12 years. This will be the first visit by a Japan Prime Minister to South Korea since 2018.
  • The upcoming trip is a sign of improving ties between the two countries, while economic barriers in the export sector also appear to be coming down, with Japan restoring South Korea to preferred trade status.
