South Carolina has a longstanding relationship with Japan, as our two economies are highly-integrated via trade in goods and services. In fact, since 2011, Japanese-owned firms have announced more than $3.5 billion in capital investment in South Carolina, bringing approximately 3,600 new jobs to our state.
Team S.C. recognizes the importance of our economic partnership with Japan, and this week, that strong relationship was on display at the 42nd Annual Joint Meeting of the Southeast U.S./Japan (SEUS-Japan) and the Japan-U.S. Southeast Associations held in Savannah, GA.
