For thirty-two years, the US-Asia Institute has worked quietly behind-the-scenes to help foster understanding and strengthen ties between the people and governments of the U.S. and Asia.
Our co-founders, Esther G. Kee and Joji Konoshima, along with early supporters including Chan Tom, Norman Lau Kee, Kay Sugahara and others, were champions of the U.S.-Asia relationship long before it became the dynamic and vital region it is today. Through the establishment of the US-Asia Institute, they built strong bonds of trust and mutual respect through an unwavering commitment to the relationship.
Through dialogue, people-to-people exchanges, and ongoing interaction at all levels, the Institute, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and a United Nations-recognized NGO, has succeeded in keeping channels for dialogue open. The Institute is unique in that its leadership includes many with close ancestral, business and cultural ties to the region. The Institute's network of political, business, government and academic leaders in the U.S. and abroad provides unique insight and access vis-à-vis this important relationship.
We invite you to be part of this effort to facilitate communication and understanding between the peoples and governments of the United States and Asia. Our mission is more critical than ever as the dynamic relationship moves forward. Please join us in this important partnership! – less – More from ZoomInfo »
