Beyond the U.S.-Japan security relationship, their relations are characterized by strong economic, cultural, and educational ties providing for greater friendship and mutual understanding between their two peoples. However, what are the specific benefits the North Star State accrues from this robust alliance?

Sasakawa USA held a presentation and Q&A in St. Paul with Dr. Satu Limaye, Vice President and Director of the East-West Center in Washington, D.C., to  discuss how Minnesota is impacted by and contributes to Japan and the overall international alliance. In his presentation, Dr. Limaye also featured the East-West Center in Washington’s Japan Matters for America Project. The event was free.

This event was sponsored by Sasakawa USA and members of Global Minnesota, and was presented in partnership with the Landmark Center and World Affairs Councils of America. It was offered as part of Sasakawa USA’s The Alliance Working in America (TAWA) series. Our TAWA series seeks to engage with regional leaders in cities across the United States on the importance of the U.S.-Japan alliance to U.S. interests, both at the regional and national levels. Previous TAWA programs have been held in Houston, Texas; Atlanta, GeorgiaOregon; and Kentucky.
