Asia Society Conference in Tokyo

The Asia Society will hold its 17th annual conference in Tokyo from May 16 - 18. The Asia Society, which is located in New York, is an NPO whose stated mission is to strengthen and improve relations between people in Asia and the United States.

The first annual conference was held in Hong Kong, China, in 1989, and focused on business and economic issues.

Tokyo hosted the conference once before, in 1993.

This year's theme is "Coming Together, Moving Ahead: Asia Economies through Integration and Innovation." No one knows what this means, but there will be simultaneous interpretation in English, Japanese, and Chinese.

US Ambassador to Japan Thomas Shieffer and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will be speaking, the latter delivering the opening address.

Details

The conference will be held from May 16 - 18 at the Prince Park Hotel, in Minato Ward Tokyo. The admission fee is 73,000 yen for the three days. Meals are included.
