The Asia Pacific Initiative (API) has, over the past two years, been producing its series of API Geoeconomic Briefing articles with a focus on post-pandemic mega-geoeconomics — power balance, international order and civilization.

With the establishment of the Institute of Geoeconomics after API's merger with the International House of Japan on July 1, the series will now run under a new Geoeconomic Briefing tag.

A week after the establishment of the institute, former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe died after being shot during a speech in Nara.
