JASH is pleased to support Sasakawa USA’s inaugural event in The Alliance Working in America (TAWA) series, which focuses on engaging regional leaders across America with the U.S.-Japan alliance.
The event, co-hosted by the Sasakawa USA, World Affairs Council of Houston, and the East-West Center in Washington, will feature a panel discussion on “The U.S.-Japan Partnership on Energy, Business, and the Challenges of China and North Korea.”
Expert analyses and data will provide a comprehensive view of how strong U.S.-Japan relations serve U.S. interests and values, and how various sectors contribute to strengthening the U.S.-Japan relationship. In particular, the event will explore key areas such as energy where U.S.-Japan ties make significant contributions to national security as well as state and local communities.
