It’s an honor to welcome Ambassador Kenichiro Sasae to San Antonio today – our city and Japan share strong economic and cultural ties. I’m grateful for all the work he and the Embassy of Japan in the USA do to bolster U.S.-Japan relations. We began the Ambassador’s visit by having lunch with local business, government, and community leaders.
