Event Overview:

Texas's 47th governor, Rick Perry has led a life of public service, starting in the United States Air Force and continuing over two decades in elected office. Governor Perry's administration has focused on creating a Texas of unlimited opportunity and prosperity by improving education, securing the border and increasing economic development through classic conservative values.

Under his leadership, Texas has reshaped itself in every policy area: limiting lawsuit abuse, cutting taxes, and cultivating a world-class workforce. This has created an epicenter for job creation in the United States, with more than 1.7 million new Texas jobs created during his tenure. Texas has cultivated a business climate second to none, earning honors from national news outlets for economic strength and business-friendly policies. More importantly, Texas has been consistently attracting employers seeking a better place to start or expand their businesses. Texas's combination of low taxes, reasonable and predictable regulatory structure and fair court system provides a stable base upon which to build the Texas economy, while the state's diverse and hard-working workforce is prepared to meet any need an employer can present.

Governor Perry understands that a healthy global economy is paramount to a strong U.S. economy. The Governor also understands the importance of a positive, strong and healthy relationship with Japan. While Japan was America's 4th largest goods export market in 2013 it also served as Texas' 10th largest goods export market. Please join us to hear Governor Perry speak to ACCJ members and guests about "The Importance of a Strong Relationship between the United States and Japan.
