US-Japan relations take a positive step–Is it good for JET?

Thanks to James Gannon (Ehime-ken, 1992-94) (Executive Director of the Japan Center for International Exchange (JCIE/USA), author of the July 3 “JET on the Chopping Block” post and one of the newest members of the JETAANY Board of Directors) for sharing this Kyodo News Service article.  Jim also attended the event in the context of his work for JCIE/USA.

Key U.S., Japan bigwigs huddle to restore ties strained by DPJ

Meeting of minds: Lawmakers, intellectuals and business leaders from Japan and the United States gather at a Tokyo hotel Tuesday to discuss ways to boost bilateral ties.


No big news to report from the gathering, which included Senator Jim Webb (D-Va).  But perhaps this is a step that could lay the groundwork for a stronger US-Japan relationship in the future, which in turn could have a positive impact on the future of JET and JETAA.

Stay tuned.
