CJEB Annual Tokyo Conference

We deeply regret that we have canceled our 2020 Tokyo conference, “The Future of Global Interdependence: Environment, Trade, and Politics” on May 18 as all Columbia business travel, both international and domestic, is now suspended for all affiliates per University guidelines.  

We continue to be grateful for our community and hope to see you at future CJEB events.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected]
