U.S.-Japan Ties: Image and Reality (NYC)

April 21, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

As part of the “U.S. Public Outreach Program” event series, Japan Society and Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA co-hosted a half-day public panel discussion in New York City to examine the depth and strength of U.S. ties with Japan based on public opinion and statistics. The event featured Takeshi Komoto, Executive Director at the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) in New York City.

The event showcased the results of a survey commissioned by Sasakawa USA and conducted by the Pew Research Center in early 2015 on U.S. public attitudes toward Japan and Japanese public attitudes toward the United States. It also featured results from the East-West Center’s “Japan-Matters for America” research project, also commissioned by Sasakawa USA, tracking national, state and Congressional district-level data on Japan’s footprint in the United States. Presentations were followed by a discussion on the results of the data and its implications for the present and future U.S.-Japan relations.
