The ACCJ Education Task Force, in collaboration with the U.S. Embassy and the U.S.-Japan Conference on Cultural and Educational Interchange (CULCON), is launching the ACCJ Internship Portal – a pilot platform which posts internship listings from participating ACCJ member companies.
The program is open to all potential interns with a focus on returning Japanese students who have studied in the U.S. as well as American students currently studying in Japan. One of the key goals of the Task Force is to help spread access to internships, encourage young people to study abroad and ultimately to create a healthy business environment in both Japan and the U.S. Click here to learn more about the program or if you are interested in participating.
The 2017 APCAC Asia Pacific Business Summit will be attended by more than 600 business and industry leaders, as well as media, academia, policy experts, ambassadors and top government officials from the U.S., China, and from across 22 economies in Asia Pacific.
Speakers include: the governor of Guam; Walmart Global CAO; HSBC Chairman Americas; United Airlines Global CAO; Party Secretary of Guangdong province; vice governors of the provinces of Fujian, Guangxi, and Hainan. Also, mayors/vice mayors of major Chinese cities such as Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Dongguan, and Yiwu, are scheduled as speakers. We also expect confirmation from several U.S. state governors and other city mayors. The senior executives of more than 300 of the largest Chinese companies who will be in attendance will also participate in the business matchmakings scheduled throughout the Summit. We expect this Summit to lead to several billion dollars of new business and cross-investments between attending American companies and institutions and their Chinese and Asia-Pacific counterparts. Special programs can be specially planned for each delegation.
