JSNC Board Chair receives Foreign Minister’s Commendation Awards

 In Uncategorized

The Japan Society of Northern California was delighted to see the announcement that our Chair of the Board, Larry Greenwood, was the recipient of the Foreign Minister’s Commendation for 2021. The commendation, which is awarded to individuals and organizations with outstanding achievements and contributions to the promotion of friendship between Japan and other countries, cited Ambassador Greenwood’s support of strong US-Japan relations in his work as a career diplomat, where he served twice in Tokyo, US ambassador to APEC where he collaborated closely with Japan, the Vice President of the Asian Development Bank where he partnered with Japan to increase financing to Asia, and President and now Chairman of the Japan Society of Northern California, where he expanded programs to foster closer ties between Japan and the Bay Area. 

Please join us in congratulating Larry and the two other Bay Area recipients, Dr. Emily Murase and Dr. Satsuki Ina, for the award!
