U.S. Government Seeks U.S. Private Sector Members for U.S.-Japan Private
Sector/Government Commission

The Department of Commerce has issued a Federal Register Notice seeking senior executive-level candidates from the U.S. private sector for membership on the U.S.-Japan Private Sector/Government Commission for the year 2002.

The Commission was launched in June 2001 by President Bush and Prime Minister Koizumi, to more fully integrate the U.S. and Japanese private sectors into the economic work of the two governments.  The Commission is part of the U.S.-Japan Economic Partnership for Growth, and will include U.S. and Japanese government and private sector representatives.

The Commission is scheduled to meet the first quarter of 2002.  The Commission’s 2002 topic, "Creating an Environment for Sustainable Growth: Raising Productivity and Corporate Revitalization," will focus on issues such as productivity, corporate restructuring, and corporate governance–key elements of a robust economy and of importance to the U.S. and Japan.

Letters of interest from U.S. private sector officials interested in participating on the Commission must be received no later than December 20, 2001.

Details on the Commission, selection criteria/process, and duties and responsibilities of private sector representatives can be found in the Federal Register Notice on the following website under the heading for the International Trade Administration: http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/fedreg/a011120c.html

For a description of the goals and structure of the Commission and the Partnership, see the "Annex to the Joint Statement," on the following website: http://www.mac.doc.gov/japan/source/menu/partnership/partnership2.html
