Dear ACCJ Members,
We are nearing the close of a busy and exciting first quarter at the ACCJ. Thank you for your engagement and participation in chamber activities so far.
On April 20, we will host a Town Hall at Tokyo American Club to share progress and hear your feedback on the 2018 strategy, which aims to improve value for members and strengthen the chamber’s voice as an advocate for US business.
The meeting, which is open to all members, will be held from 17:00-18:30 followed by a one-hour reception for informal conversation and networking.
One of the ACCJ’s most important strategic initiatives in 2018 is the Membership Value Project (MVP). Over the last few weeks, many of you have participated in MVP focus groups or shared feedback via other channels. At this Town Hall, our research partner company Yuzu Kyodai will share findings from the MVP research. We will also schedule time for an open Q&A to hear your views on these and other topics.
This is an important meeting at which we will discuss key initiatives at the chamber. I look forward to seeing you on April 20.

[Fully Booked] Government of Japan Cybersecurity Efforts Ahead of Tokyo 2020: Challenges and Opportunities
The ACCJ is pleased to host Mr. Nobuyuki Hirano, Chairman of the Japan-U.S. Business Council (JUBC) and President and Group Chief Executive Officer, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group at a special lunchtime event on April 10.
Mr. Hirano will share his thoughts on the U.S. and Japan economic relationship in a changing world and discuss ways that businesses from the two countries can cooperate on issues of common interest.
The Japan-U.S. Business Council primarily consists of major Japanese companies doing business in the U.S. Its mission includes making recommendations – together with its sister organization the U.S.-Japan Business Council – to the Japanese and U.S. governments on strengthening commercial ties between the two countries.
This is an excellent opportunity to hear the views of Japanese business on how to advance the U.S.-Japan economic relationship.

We look forward to seeing you on April 10.
