On September 29, Consul-General Matsumoto spoke at a grassroots exchange event co-hosted by the Greater Jackson Chamber and the Consulate-General of Japan in Nashville. The event was attended by local government officials, including Madison County Mayor A.J. Massey, Jackson City Mayor Scott Conger, State Representative Johnny Shaw and Chris Todd, as well as representatives from Japanese companies and U.S. companies involved in the local EV projects.

In his speech, Consul-General Matsumoto touched on the strong economic relationship between Japan and Tennessee, thanked the Japanese companies for their business activities and contributions and thanked local officials for their support. The Consul-General also explained the Consulate's role in the U.S.-Japan relationship.
One of the Japanese-affiliated companies at the event provided an overview of their business operations and cooperative relationships with the community. In addition, a U.S.-based EV-related company that recently decided to locate in the area shared information on the progress of their project and their efforts to develop human resources. The participants also had a meaningful opportunity to socialize over lunch and exchange ideas for future cooperation and collaboration.
The Consulate-General of Japan in Nashville will continue to participate in various events and activities to support Japanese companies in the region.
