PAS Japan invites proposals for projects that strengthen ties between Japan and the United States through programming that promotes bilateral cooperation.

- Programs that foster greater bilateral trade and investment between the U.S. and Japan, including securing supply chains, enhancing women’s participation in the Japanese economy, fighting climate change, and promoting sustainable infrastructure investment in the Indo-Pacific region.
