The U.S.-Japan Council Annual Conference is an yearly event that brings together regional, national and international leaders from government, business, academia and non-profit sectors to discuss the current status and continuous future of the U.S.-Japan collaboration.
The 2016 Annual Conference, held in Silicon Valley, will be the seventh USJC Conference to date. Themed “Imagine. Innovate. Inspire.—The Silicon Valley Experience,” this yearʹs Conference will be our first in California. It will be attended by hundreds of distinguished U.S. and Japanese leaders from all sectors, providing a unique opportunity for networking. It will highlight innovation, entrepreneurship and inspiring the next generation of leaders, building upon themes discussed at the 2015 Conference, the 2014 Governors’ Meeting in Silicon Valley, as well as during Prime Minister Abe’s 2015 visit to Silicon Valley.
