Statement Attributable to Bob Harvey, President and CEO, Greater Houston Partnership 
“The Greater Houston Partnership is excited to partner with Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner on a trade and investment mission to Japan. The week-long mission will include a series of high-profile business and government meetings in the Japanese cities of Tokyo and Chiba with the goal of establishing new avenues for cooperation in the areas of energy, innovation, advanced manufacturing, life sciences and transportation/mobility. Japan is the largest foreign investor into the United States and one of Houston’s top 10 global trade partners. Trade between our regions has more than doubled over the past decade, and Houston is home to an impressive set of Japanese firms. International missions are an important part of our effort to strengthen Houston’s ties with our partners around the world and we’re looking forward to the discussions that will take place in Japan.”
