NHK reported this morning on Japan Infrastructure Investment Forum 2018 held in Washington on Tuesday, during which Transportation Minister Ishii exchanged views with Transportation Secretary Chao. According to the network, Ishii expressed hope for stronger bilateral cooperation on measures against aging transportation infrastructure such as highways. Ishii was quoted as saying: “I would like to find ideas for U.S. and Japanese companies to cooperate in infrastructure projects. Let’s build a strong network in transportation infrastructure between the U.S. and Japan.” Noting that one of President Trump’s policy priorities for this year is to realize private and public sector investment of over 100 trillion yen in infrastructure projects, the network said the GOJ is hoping to advance bilateral cooperation in infrastructure by utilizing private-sector funds since this presents an opportunity for Japanese firms to expand their business in the U.S.
