The Department of Commerce and Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry will hold a roundtable December 3 in conjunction with the Department of Energy’s Energy Policy Dialogue. U.S. companies will have the opportunity to ask questions to Japanese policy-makers and gain a deeper understanding of where the policy environment in Japan is headed in the coming years. Following the discussion, the delegation will travel to Fukushima Prefecture and Sendai for site visits to hear from local officials about the role of renewable energy in Japan’s rebuilding efforts. The application deadline is November 9, 2012.
