The America-Japan Society, Inc. is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has appointed former Prime Minister Abe Shinzo as Honorary President.
Mr Abe has close relations with the United States, having studied in the US. During the longest tenure as Prime Minister of Japan in history, he maintained and developed a strong alliance with the United States through his friendly relations with former President Barak Obama and President Donald Trump. In the past, Mr Abe’s grandfather, former Prime Minister Kishi Nobusuke, was the Society’s sixth president (1968-1984).
The Society believes that Mr Abe’s inauguration as Honorary President will greatly contribute to further enhancement of the US-Japan relationship.
