「US Economic Trends and Business with Japanese Companies」
As global affairs are changing rapidly, the US economy faces challenges that require strategic action.

As for Japan and the State of Washington, a Memorandum of Cooperation on Economic and Trade Relations has been renewed in June 2022 to further support and coordinate efforts in next-generation industries and to strengthen the cooperative relationship between the parties. This seminar will explain US economic trends focusing on finance in Japanese. Also, it introduces valuable tips to do business with Japanese companies in English.* A reception will follow the presentations.
