In his opening remarks, Consul-General Matsumoto explained the strong Japan-Tennessee economic relationship, noting that Japanese companies have been operating in Tennessee since the 1970s and that more than 60,000 Tennesseans are currently employed at more than 200 locations. He also mentioned that the festival site is a park built on the former site of the 1982 International Exhibition Center, and promoted the 2025 Osaka-Kansai Expo.
