Consul-General Fukushima visits TNECD's Commissioner Rolfe

On January 9th, Consul-General Fukushima made her first official visit to the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (TNECD) to meet with Commissioner Bob Rolfe.   Their discussion focused on the strength and vitality of the longstanding partnership between Japan and Tennessee.
Japanese Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Tennessee is estimated at more than $19 billion and is an important contributor to the strong bilateral partnership.  Both Consul-General Fukushima and Commissioner Rolfe expressed their commitment to build upon this historical relationship and further strengthen the Japan-Tennessee Friendship.
In Tennessee, nearly 200 Japanese companies employ more than 52,000 Tennesseans.
