NHK reported this afternoon that this year’s Japan-U.S. Business Conference concluded today, adopting a joint statement calling for the return of the United States to the TPP. According to the network, about 60 business leaders from both nations participated in the online conference and called on the U.S. and Japanese governments to gradually promote decarbonization efforts so as not to affect the two nations’ industrial competitiveness. They also called for the U.S. to return to the TPP to build a free and open trade system. In the area of economic security, they said the governments should share information with companies when restricting exports of state-of-the-art technologies. Japan-U.S. Business Council Chairman Hirano Nobuyuki, who led the Japanese team at the conference, reportedly told the press: “It is a major step forward that U.S. business leaders expressed hope for the U.S. to return to TPP.”
