Connecting People & Ideas to Advance Mutual Interests in U.S.-Asia Relations

In November 2012 the Mansfield Foundation released “Crafting a Contemporary U.S.-Japan Vision,” a publication based on the work of the Mansfield Foundation Task Force on Crafting a Contemporary U.S.-Japan Vision for Shared Progress and Prosperity. The Task Force was launched by the Foundation in partnership with the Japan Commerce Association of Washington (JCAW) and the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry of New York (JCCI) as part of a broader initiative by JCAW and JCCI to commemorate the 2012 Cherry Blossom Centennial. Crafting a Contemporary U.S.-Japan Vision recommends forward-looking strategic initiatives through which the U.S. and Japan can contribute to mutual economic strength and vitality. It also includes seven essays reflecting Task force members’ perspectives on the group’s work. The publication is available on the Mansfield Foundation’s website in English and in Japanese.
