“We Are Tomodachi” – Summer 2017 Edition

Greetings to all members of JET Alumni Association from the staff of the Prime Minister’s Office of Japan.

We are pleased to announce that we have published on the JapanGov official government website (http://www.japan.go.jp/tomodachi/) “We are Tomodachi,” Summer 2017, a digital publication that introduces initiatives by the Japanese Government and attractions of Japan.

The featured topic in the Summer 2017 issue is “Raising the Banner of Free Trade.” We focus on Japan’s international trade, with articles that highlight Toray Industries’ investments in the U.S. for its carbon fiber business, the market for foreign automobiles in Japan, and Japan’s efforts to boost exports of agricultural, forestry and fishery products and foods.
Other articles in this latest issue cover such topics as Rugby World Cup 2019 taking place in Japan, and the opening of “Japan House” as an overseas point for communicating Japanese culture.
We hope you will find the contents interesting and enjoyable to read.
