We advocate for our members by issuing viewpoints and public comments, and taking our message to the Japanese government, regulatory agencies and politicians while coordinating our advocacy with other industry associations in Japan, and with U.S. government agencies. This committee also reaches out to regional and multilateral organizations to participate in broader regulatory reform processes. In addition to our monthly meetings (except August and December), we meet with regulators and legislators for our advocacy efforts. We participate in Task Forces, help draft white papers, and join briefings with U.S. government officials.
