Corporate Program past event

Japan and the U.S. have enjoyed the closest of relationships, politically and economically, for the last sixty years. However, China’s emergence as a world economy in the past decade has made it a power that must be reckoned with. This panel discussion focuses on the business experience of multinational companies — and their counsel — in navigating mergers and other alliances among China, Japan and the US with completely divergent cultures, histories, and legal systems.
