The Mitsui Lecture Series

The Mitsui Lecture Series is made possible by the generous support of The Mitsui U.S.A. Foundation to deepen the understanding of contemporary Japan and Tennessee and create a sense of community and exchange. This year, high profile speakers will join three forums highlighting Japan’s footprint around the world and its contributions to Tennessee’s prosperity over the last forty years.

The Mitsui U.S.A. Foundation was established in 1987 as the philanthropic arm of Mitsui & Co. (U.S.A.), Inc. for active, social contribution programs in communities where the company does business.



JAST is honored and excited to present this first-rate session of The Mitsui Lecture Series.
