U.S.-Japan Space Forum: Japan-U.S. Space Cooperation in the Abe-Trump Era

The U.S.-Japan Space Forum is a standing committee of Japanese and American space policy experts, meeting regularly to examine critical developments and opportunities for bilateral and multilateral space-related activities. Reflecting the increasingly important role of the private sector in national space capabilities, the Forum integrates the perspectives of a wide array of experts, including corporate representatives alongside academic and government players, in an informal environment that is conducive to creative and frank discourse. As a function of its diverse membership of recognized space policy and foreign policy expertise, the group presents a strong and credible voice for advocating its concerns--ultimately it aims to influence a space policy that yields a stronger basis for bilateral space collaboration and which reflects both the evolving global security circumstances and the increasing importance of a robust and sustainable private sector to national space activities. The Forum runs roughly in parallel to the government-to-government "Japan-U.S. Comprehensive Dialogue on Space."

Please join members of the U.S.-Japan Space Forum for a discussion on U.S.-Japan 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 seminar is hosted by the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Foundation and co-sponsored by Leadership Development Program for Space Exploration and Research, Nagoya University Program for Leading Graduate Schools. The U.S.-Japan Space Forum is sponsored by Boeing, IHI Aerospace, Lockheed Martin, MELCO, MHI, NEC, and Raytheon, with support from the U.S. Embassy Japan.
