Challenges and Opportunities for U.S.-Japan Exchange in the New Era: Report of the International Symposium
The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership,
preface by Minoru Kusuda

In February 1991, the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership held a symposium, "Challenges and Opportunities for U.S.-Japan Exchange in the New Era," which focused mainly on the conduct of intellectual exchange in the context of the Japan-U.S. relationship and in which representatives of major foundations and research institutions in the United States and Japan participated. Published with the cooperation of the Japan Center for International Exchange, this report reproduces the texts of speeches given during the symposium and provides a brief summary of points raised in discussion.

This report is organized under five major themes: development of the U.S.-Japan relationship and exchange in the new era, the bilateral relationship and foundations and institutions in the new era, enhancing human resources for bilateral exchange, new approaches to exchange and cooperation, and global issues and common problems of advanced societies. The report stresses the qualitatively changing nature of the relationship and the consequent need to recast it in view of new global realities, especially through enhanced intellectual exchange.
