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

On March 6-8 the Mansfield Foundation hosted a series of three public seminars on U.S.-Japan space cooperation in the context of the new American president, Japan and America’s global leadership in an era of global uncertainty, heightened regional security concerns, and increasing space competition from traditional and non-traditional space players. The seminars were held in Kyoto (March 6), Nagoya (March 7), and Tokyo (March 8). They featured guest speakers and members of the U.S.-Japan Space Forum, a standing committee of Japanese and American space policy experts who meet regularly to examine critical developments and opportunities for bilateral and multilateral space-related activities.
