Japan-US Symposium 2014 (November 25, 2013)
Japan-U.S. Symposium 2014, harmonizing with the recent Japanese "Abenomics" measures, aims at reconstructing economic interaction between Japan and the United States. Industry professionals from both countries will highlight business attractiveness and government support in Japan, suggesting business and investment opportunities and how you can engage business in Japan.
Japan has long been one of the most important economic partners for the U.S. While Japan is in the process of economic revitalization itself, the world economic dynamics has been rapidly changing with the rise of emerging economies. As one of the biggest economies in the world, it is critical for Japan to re-energize partnership with the U.S., readdress its economic competitiveness, and bring in more foreign business and investment to its attractive sectors.
During the course of the sessions, you will be navigated into recent technology revolution to find how Japanese technologies and know-how are essential to innovation in various industries. The breakout sessions will focus on specific growing markets - Energy & Environment, Healthcare and more - to discuss future opportunities, explore how Japanese expertise can provide additional values to your business, and understand how the U.S. and Japanese enterprises can boost business collaboration. The symposium will also provide an opportunity to learn about supportive measures by the Japanese government as well as local governments such as subsidies, preferential treatment, and deregulations for foreign businesses establishing in Japan.
Please join in our event with Japanese government officials and leading industry professionals and explore how to boost economic growth in both economies.
