Corporate Roundtable, Dec. 3, 2014

JASM Corporate Roundtable Meeting, Wednesday, Dec. 3, 2014

 

“Want to Make the Best of Your Business Strategies in Japan? Let JETRO Guide the Way”

Enhance your understanding of the Japanese market with the Japan America Society of Minnesota Corporate Roundtable, a business forum featuring speakers from the Board of Directors, corporate member companies, and their colleagues visiting from Japan.

 

We are very pleased to welcome Ichiro Sone, the Chief Executive Director of JETRO Chicago to this JASM Corporate Roundtable program. The Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) is a Japanese governmental organization whose mission is “to promote mutual trade and investment between Japan the rest of the world.”  We are pleased that Mr. Sone will join us in a discussion of recent economic developments in Japan and how U.S. companies can increase their effectiveness in promoting their goods and services to Japan. What areas of the Japanese economy are increasingly open to investment from the U.S.? What are some of the challenges that face Japanese companies in the current economic situation in Asia and the Pacific? How is JETRO positioned to assist American companies in their Japan business initiatives? These are some of the questions that will be addressed in the business roundtable discussion by Mr. Sone.

 

Ichiro Sone was appointed the Chief Executive Director of JETRO – Chicago in June, 2013. He has served in a number of posts for JETRO, including positions in JETRO’s offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco where he worked in public relations and business development. He has also provided leadership in the management of JETRO’s North America offices and supervised the opening of new offices for JETRO in Cambodia, China and India. Director Sone has a diverse background in business as well as other fields due to his bachelor’s degree in art history and museum studies from Doshisha University in Kyoto.
