Japan-U.S. Business & Technology Symposium 2014 – "Opportunities for Innovation: Getting More Involved With Japanese Business"

February 10, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Special invitation only.

Aligning with the recent Japanese “Abenomics” measures, the Japan-U.S. Business and Technology Symposium 2014 aims to reinvigorate economic interaction between Japan and the United States.  Beginning with a keynote speech by Stephen P. Hoover, CEO of PARC, a Xerox company, breakout sessions with industry professionals from both countries will focus on specific, high-growth industries to discuss funding opportunities, explore how Japanese expertise can provide additional value to U.S. businesses, and understand how the U.S. and Japanese enterprise can boost business collaboration.  Breakout session topics include Information Technology, Energy & Environment, and Healthcare & Medical Devices.
As the 3rd largest economy in the world by GDP, Japan remains one of the most important economic partners for the U.S. as it undergoes a process of economic revitalization.  Dynamics of the world economy continues to change rapidly with the rise of the emerging markets, thus making a strong relationship between Japan and the U.S. critical to the economic health of both countries.
During the course of the event, attendees will be introduced to recent Japanese technologies advances and learn how such innovations are essential to growth in several industries.  The symposium will also provide an opportunity to learn about supportive measures by the Japanese government such as subsidies, preferential treatment, and deregulation for foreign business etablishments in Japan.
Please join the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) event with Japanese government officials and leading industry professionals, and explore how to boost economic growth in both countries.
