Invite you to a Meet and Greet Reception with Japanese Diet Members
Monday, September 9, 2013 6:00 - 7:30 PM
Taro Kono is a fifth-term member and Seiji Kihara is a second-term member of Japan’s House of Representatives. Both are members of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), which has a two-thirds majority in the lower house. With the LDP’s sweeping victory in this July’s upper house election, what does this new majority mean for the Prime Minister’s “Abe-nomics” plan to revive Japan’s economy? Or the possible changing the post-war constitution laid down by America in 1946? What will be the impact on the U.S.-Japan relationship? Please join us for this meet and greet reception, which will include short speeches by Representatives Kono and Kihara.
