The Second Japan Infrastructure Investment Forum

The Japan Infrastructure Investment Forum will create an unique opportunity to bring together best-in-class experts from the American and Japanese infrastructure sectors with U.S. and Japanese infrastructure officials and policymakers.
Attendees at the first forum, held in Washington, D.C., included Keiichi Ishii, Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism(MLIT), and Elaine L. Chao, United States Secretary of Transportation. The second forum is set to take place in Indianapolis, Indiana; a state attracting private investment due in part to a developed P3 system. Through a series of lectures and networking opportunities, this forum will help promote infrastructure opportunities for Japanese and American businesses.
