Southeast U.S./Japan Conference
The 35th Annual Joint Meeting between the Southeast United States and Japan will be held at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo Sept. 13-15, 2012.
2012 marks the return of the SEUS/Japan conference to Japan at a time of new opportunities as companies consider their supply chain infrastructures in context with today's global investment landscape.
The SEUS/Japan conference, always a high-profile event, will enjoy even greater attention this year thanks to Japanese Chairman Hiromasa Yonekura. Yonekura-san is one of the top business leaders in Japan, primarily serving as chairman of the influential Japan Business Federation (Nippon Keidanren). United States Ambassador to Japan John V. Roos has also been invited to address conference delegates.
The 2012 conference features an outstanding group of speakers and an attractive series of special activities in and surrounding Tokyo, Japan's largest city. This year's conference theme, "In Harmony With Tradition and Innovation" will be reflected in conference sessions on important topics such as:
- Investment Opportunities in the S.E. United States
- Innovation Towards Business Solutions
- Supply Chain and Infrastructure
