Walk In U.S., Talk on Japan
Japan holds a close relationship with the Lone Star State; it's the fourth largest importer of goods from Texas. On Friday, June 19, a high-level Japanese delegation presented a panel discussion on Japan's challenges and opportunities in the twenty-first century. Led by former Ambassador Yasuo Saito, the delegates are part of the "Walk in U.S., Talk on Japan" initiative, organized by the Office of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in order to foster exchange and cultural understanding.
Former Mayor Henry Cisneros offers opening remarks, followed by the delegates (in separate audio files below). The event was presented by the City of San Antonio, University of the Incarnate Word, Japan-America Society of San Antonio, and the World Affairs Council of San Antonio.
