Event Details

The Embassy of Japan will gather business experts, auto industry insiders, and journalists on the sidelines of the Washington Auto Show to explore Japan’s key place in the U.S. auto industry.

The Japanese auto industry supports 1.5 million American jobs, and Japanese automotive companies have recently announced major investments that promise to deepen the strong economic ties between Japan and cities across the United States. At this on-the-record event, you’ll learn more about the U.S.-sourced parts that put many Japan-brand autos at the top of “Made in the USA” rankings and the strength of the US-Japan economic partnership!
