The United States and Japan first established diplomatic relations 157 years ago in 1858. It is understatement to say that there have been highs and lows in the relationship, but for the past 70 years its safe to say that the two countries have enjoyed an extremely positive trade and diplomatic relationship.
Thanks to the Country of Japan and the Japan Consulate in Los Angeles, a series of trade visits have been set up with Japanese officials including Ambassador Ichiro Fujisaki that discuss building on the success for more cross border success.
Global Chamber® and Global Chamber® Phoenix are honored to collaborate with the Country of Japan, the LA Consulate, the Consular Corps of Arizona and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to host a delegation from Japan in Arizona this week. Both major events are SOLD OUT - which goes to the level of interest by Americans to continue and grow our relationship with Japan.
Our CEO/founder Doug Bruhnke lived in Japan for 4 years as an executive for Dupont and has done business with Japanese companies for decades, and so he can attest first hand to the challenges and opportunities facing U.S. companies and investors as they expand trade and investment with Japan.
Conversely Japanese companies and investors continue to be a strong source of cross border trade and investment in the United States. As long time and trusted partners, American companies can still look to Japan for increasing opportunities, especially as progress is made with trade deals.
We hope all Global Chamber members will become familiar with the US-Japan cross border opportunities. We hope that this week's meeting in the United States with Ambassador Fujisaki and the Japanese delegation will enlighten, enrich and enable success.
