Japan Update Symposium
Joseph M. Young, Director for Japanese Affairs, East Asia/Pacific Affairs Bureau, U.S. Department of State and Dr. Haruo Iguchi, Professor of International Studies, Kwansei Gakuin University

Friday, February 17, 2017 11:30 AM - 2:30 PM

The annual Japan Update Symposium, an informative program of the Japan-America Society of Dallas/Fort Worth, traditionally focuses on the enduring relationship of Japan and the United States. But there's a new facet in Washington, D.C.

Consequently the Japan Update Symposium’s subtitle this year is "U.S. - Japan Relations Under the New U.S. Administration." The event also will examine anti-internationalism and the Texas attitude.

The event opens with an address by Joseph M. Young, Director of the Office of Japanese Affairs at the U.S. Department of State, and Dr. Haruo Iguchi, Professor of International Studies at Kwansei Gakuin University, discussing the aspects of the American-Japanese relationship as things evolve in the President Donald Trump administration in Washington, D.C.

The address headlines the Japan Update Symposium noon luncheon on Friday, February 17, at the Intercontinental Dallas at 15201 Dallas Parkway in Addison.

From 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Intercontinental Dallas, the Japan Update Symposium presents a panel discussion titled "Rising Anti-Internationalism? The Texas Exception."

The moderator is Dr. Hiroki Takeuchi, Associate Professor and Director, Sun & Star Program on Japan and East Asia, Tower Center for Political Studies at Southern Methodist University.

Other announced panelists include:
  • Junji Kurokawa, Chief Executive Director, JETRO Houston (Japan External Trade Organization)
  • Tim B. Keith, President, Texas Central Partners
  • Howard E. Kass, Vice President, Regulatory Affairs, American Airlines
