Doing Business in Japan in Turbulent Times

September 18 @ 8:00 am CDT

/ Free

Japan is the world’s third-largest economy and remains one of the most reliable trade and investment partners for the United States. As two democracies accounting for 30% of the global economy, the United States and Japan could generate greater benefits for each other and beyond through closer cooperation. However, regional tensions are raising concerns about the economic stability in the region, and U.S. withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership has excluded U.S. businesses from preferential tariff and investment protections in Japan.

Join us for a panel discussion on these developments and opportunities for Minnesota companies despite the turbulence.

Topics will include:

  • The business climate in Japan
  • The U.S.-Japan relationship
  • Trade tensions and treaties
  • Legal, tax, and accounting issues
