The US Japan Partnership on Energy, Business, and the Challenges of China and North Korea is a panel discussion sponsored by SASAKAWA USA.
In the face of growing threats from North Korea and increasingly assertive China, the U.S.-Japan alliance plays a clear and vital role in the Asia-Pacific region to defend the interests and values of the United States and its allies against these challenges. This alliance has also served as a foundation for strengthening other areas of U.S.-Japan relations to protect U.S. economic and energy interests, among others, which in turn has enhanced and supported the security alliance as well as U.S. global leadership.Through expert analyses and data, this event will provide a comprehensive view of how U.S. interests and values are served by strong U.S.-Japan relations, and how various sectors contribute to strengthening the U.S.-Japan relationship. In particular, our event in Houston, Texas will explore a couple of key areas such as energy, where U.S.-Japan ties make significant contributions to national security as well as the state and local community.
-Ambassador James P. Zumwalt: CEO Sasakawa USA
