NAJAS/KKC Business Speaker Series

SINCE 2012

Co-sponsored by National Association of Japan-America Societies and the Keizai Koho Center, the NAJAS/KKC Business Speaker Series provides unique business content and information about the U.S.-Japan relationship to a broad audience across the United States.
With the support of local Japan-America Societies, the Business Speaker Series provides opportunities for Japanese corporate executives to speak directly to diverse audiences about their business strategies, their collaborations with and contributions to local industries and communities.
At each event, candid conversations also take place regarding public policy issues to reinforce U.S.- Japan economic relations.
