Overview: The Japan Business Forum is an economic event created in partnership with the University
of Wyoming and the Consulate-General of Japan in Denver. It will highlight current
economic connections and cooperation between Wyoming and Japan, which to date are
primarily in large demonstration projects in the energy sector aiming at cleaner energy
production, and will also explore opportunities for further development in economic
collaboration, including expansion into other sectors. Energy is one of the essential
keys when we think about the economy. Japan is the fourth-largest importer of crude
oil and the third-largest importer of coal, as such there are many business opportunities
in the Japanese energy market. As a state, Wyoming is ranked third in total energy
production. Both Japan and Wyoming are aiming to secure low-emission energy technologies
to address environmental concerns and production sustainability. Other areas of potential
economic cooperation include the sectors of tourism, agriculture, biotech, blockchain
technologies, education, construction, and the emerging hydrogen economy.
The forum comes out of a government task force action plan regarding the development of the Japan-US economic relationship at a grassroots level. The forum's goal is to promote mutual understanding for the growth of economic cooperation between Japan and the state of Wyoming, and to contribute toward developing and strengthening the overarching Japan-US relationship.
