The Distinguished Speaker Series

The Distinguished Speaker Series exposes Members of Congress and senior congressional staff to the issues that affect U.S.-Japan relations by bringing high-level speakers to Capitol Hill.  The Congressional Study Group on Japan is pleased to have the opportunity to organize events featuring Members of the Japanese Diet, U.S. and Japanese administration officials, and other leading experts, journalists, and captains of industry. The Congressional Study Group on Japan works with the Embassy of Japan, business community, and other like-minded organizations to maximize collaboration toward our shared goal of promoting international legislative dialogue.

Chief of Staff Study Tour to Japan

Member of Congress Study Tour to Japan

All of our Congressional Study Groups include a Study Tour component that allows legislative and economic exchanges between lawmakers and their staffs in the United States and those of our allies across the world. Study Tours provide the opportunity for examination of the economic realities in those nations; interaction with students, journalists and business leaders; and a better understanding of bilateral and multilateral trade between the United States and our trading partners. Members of Congress travelling to Japan have met Prime Minister Abe, important financial and security ministers and to receive top secret briefings from United States State Department personnel. As well, the bipartisan bonds created on these tours have resulted in legislative cooperation in the halls of Congress that have lasted long after the tour

 

Chief of Staff Study Tour to Japan

Our Chief of Staff Study Tours provide the opportunity for examination, by some of the top staffers in the U.S. House and Senate, of the economic realities in Japan; interaction with students, journalists and business leaders; and a better understanding of bilateral and multilateral trade between the United States and our trading partners. Senior staff travelling on study tours to Japan meet with critical government officials, as well as taking advantage of the opportunity to interact with their fellow staffers from across the aisle, providing a sense of comity and cooperation that lasts long after their tour is complete.

District Director Study Tour to Japan

All of our Congressional Study Groups include a Study Tour component that allows legislative and economic exchanges between lawmakers and their staffs in the United States and those of our allies across the world. Study Tours provide the opportunity for examination of the economic realities in those nations; interaction with students, journalists and business leaders; and a better understanding of bilateral and multilateral trade between the United States and our trading partners. District Directors can meet those with similar positions from across the aisle and across the country, to learn how similar staff in other countries do their jobs. With this bipartisan, multinational perspective, they are better to accomplish the tasks that lead to happier, better served constituents.
