Japan-Texas Economic Summit

Monday, May. 7, 2018 – Wednesday, May. 9, 2018

12:00 PM – 03:00 PM


Presented by U.S.-Japan Council

Asia Society Texas Center is pleased to support the U.S.-Japan Council (USJC) as it hosts the Japan-Texas Economic Summit this May. Following the highly successful Japan-Hawaii Economic Summit in 2017, the Japan-Texas Economic Summit will bring together business leaders, investors, state and local officials, and economic development organizations from across the Lone Star State and Japan.

Texas is a leading destination for foreign direct investment from Japan, and USJC will welcome government and business representatives from the Government of Japan and prefectures throughout the country to explore further opportunities to strengthen the relationship between Japan and the state of Texas. The Summit will feature keynote addresses from prominent leaders from both countries, showcase Texas cities and their economic development opportunities, and focus on topics of importance to the Japan-Texas relationship such as industry innovation, workforce development, energy, medicine, manufacturing, transportation, finance, national security, and more.

For more information, please visit USJC's website or contact USJC Director of Partnerships & Development Akiko Otani at aotani@usjapancouncil.org.
