Japan-U.S. business forum scheduled
PENSACOLA — The Japan-U.S. Grass-Root Business Partnership Forum, organized by the Japan External Trade Organization, is set 1-3 p.m. March 5 at Gulf Power Company, One Energy Place, Pensacola.
The forum — which aims to deepen the economic partnership between Japan and the United States — will advocate creation of new business through bi-directional trade and investment, strengthening cooperative work between Japan and U.S. companies, as well as business expansion in other countries and regions.
"By promoting grass-root business partnerships, we hope to contribute to the economic prosperity of both countries and regions," a media release for the event states. "The format of the forum will be divided into two sessions: one focused upon the strategies Japanese companies have taken when expanding in the U.S. market, and the second session focusing on the opportunities that currently exist in the Japanese market as well as newly emerging ones, including advanced technology applications."
