JASC recipient of NAJAS / Keizai Koho Center Business Speaker Series Grant

NAJAS (National Association of Japan America Societies) and the Keizai Koho Center (KKC) have teamed up to offer the NAJAS/KKC Business Speaker Series through member Japan-America Societies. Funded by the Keidanren, KKC's parent organization, this series combines a senior executive from a Japanese corporation and a recognized Japan expert in a public presentation hosted by a JAS. In their presentations, the senior executives have described the business climate and the impact of their companies' investment in the United States. The Japan experts have addressed bilateral trade and economic issues of interest to JAS members, including the Transpacific Trade Partnership. 

The NAJAS/KKC Business Speaker Series enables Japan-America Societies to present unique business-related content to their corporate members and the public. 

The 2018 program winners are:

  • Japan America Society of Colorado
  • Japan-America Society of Hawaii
  • Japan-America Society of Oregon
  • Japan-America Society of Washington DC

On May 2, 2018 we will welcome Mr. Hiroyuki Takai, Executive Officer, Sumitomo Corporation (Tokyo) and President & CEO of Sumitomo Corporation Global Research Co. Ltd.  The theme of our program will be "Natural Resources & Energy".
