The Consulate General of Japan in New York, working in conjunction with the Virginia state government and JETRO New York, invited Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe and Secretary of Commerce and Trade Maurice Jones to Ambassador Sumio Kusaka's residence on October 6th, to exchange ideas and opinions with leaders of ten Japanese companies which have a base here in New York.
Virginia, whose economy is closely linked to Washington DC, is hoping to expand trade and investment by Japanese companies through its efforts to further improve its business environment under the leadership of Governor McAuliffe. With this in mind, Governor McAuliffe, who assumed office this past January, will travel to Japan from October 19th to the 21st to encourage investment in Virginia by Japanese companies.
At this meeting, Governor McAuliffe gave a presentation regarding the appealing aspects of the economic and business environments of Virginia. He then engaged in enthusiastic talks with the ten Japanese business executives present.
The Consulate General of Japan in New York wishes to further assist Japanese companies who are located here by events such as these.
