Investing in America: Opportunities for Japan

Rahm Emanuel, U.S. Ambassador to Japan

10:30-11:30 Monday, November 21, 2022
(The speech and Q & A will be in English.)


Since taking office, U.S. President Joe Biden has worked to make America a place to invest. With record-level "mega-investments" greater than $1 billion springing up across the country, private sector investment is flocking to the American market.

Please join us as we welcome, for a second appearance at FCCJ, U.S. Ambassador to Japan Rahm Emanuel. Drawing on his high-level government, diplomatic, and political experiences, the ambassador will outline how the U.S. has facilitated these new manufacturing and industrial investments. He will also explain how American political stability is unlocking the strengths of the U.S. economy, how the Biden-Harris administration's legislative accomplishments are stimulating the private sector, and what this means for expanding U.S.-Japan economic engagement. 

Ambassador Emanuel served previously as a senior advisor to President Bill Clinton and as Chief of Staff to President Barack Obama. He has also served as Mayor of Chicago, and arrived in Tokyo to take up his ambassadorial post in January of this year.
