We are delighted to welcome the British Ambassador to Japan, HE Mr Paul Madden, to address the Japan Society at the end of his first year in post. In this lecture, Paul Madden will share his views on the political, diplomatic and commercial situation in Japan from his unique perspective as the UK’s representative in Tokyo.

The Society’s annual lecture by the current British Ambassador is always relevant, thought-provoking and useful to people from across its membership, as well as being extremely well attended. The Ambassador will speak for 30-40 minutes, after which there will be time for off-the-record discussion and questions.

There will be a reception immediately after the lecture. The Japan Society is extremely grateful to leading Corporate Member, Nomura International plc, for hosting this event.

Paul Madden CMG became British Ambassador to Japan in January 2017. He was previously British High Commissioner to Australia (2011-15) and British High Commissioner to Singapore (2007-11).

As Assistant Director of Information at the FCO (2003-2004) he was responsible for public diplomacy policy, including managing the FCO funding of the BBC World Service, the British Council and the Chevening Scholarships programme.
