Bob Kumaki Invited to Japan to Support Outreach Efforts

In March 2016, Council Leader Bob Kumaki participated in the MOFA Domestic & Foreign Multilayer Network of Influential Figures. He was one of two Americans invited by the Government of Japan. The focus of the trip was to provide influential figures abroad with accurate information on Japan’s policies and values to expand the outreach of Japan’s policy advocacy, and work as a communications hub for exchanging ideas and disseminating accurate information to the world. Leaders Mr. Kumaki met with included Mr. Tomohiko Taniguchi, Special Advisor to Prime Minister Abe’s Cabinet; Ms. Miki Ebara, Editor in Chief, NHK World; and Mr. Kenko Sone, Deputy Cabinet Secretary for Public Affairs.
