“Network for the Future” Japan Study Tour Successfully Concludes


The third cohort of the US-Japan Network for the Future Program concluded their week-long study trip in Tokyo and Okinawa on June 19th.   During their stay, they had numerous briefings and discussions on Japanese domestic and international issues with government officials, Diet members, corporate leaders, journalists and leading policy experts, including Abe Fellows.  Through these meetings, the participants expanded and deepened their networks in a myriad of sectors.  The group was accompanied by Advisory Committee members Ezra Vogel (Harvard University), Susan Pharr (Harvard University), and Leonard Schoppa (University of Virginia).  This program is organized by the Mansfield Foundation and supported by CGP.
