The International Law Prof Blog has passed along details about an upcoming teleconference, “Doing Business with Japan,” sponsored by the American Bar Association Section of International Law.
The conference could not come at a better time. Businessweek’s Daniel Kruger reported this week that Japan has overtaken China as the largest foreign holder of U.S. Treasury securities. The number is staggering–Japan is now holding $768.8 Billion in U.S. T-Bills.
Folks, the conference is a great first step towards bridging the trade gap and getting back some of those T-Bills.

Are you interested in getting a better understanding of the legal system in Japan? Or in the advantages (and dangers) of selecting Japanese law or Japan as a place to arbitrate? Or other issues relating to doing business with (and in) Asia?
