In October, our Board of Directors traveled to Tokyo for a week-long program of engagement with U.S. military forces stationed in Japan, Japanese and American business leaders, and Japanese government officials. We returned with a keen sense of how deeply important U.S. leadership is to strengthening and protecting a free, open, rules-based international order in Asia—for Japan as well as for our other allies and partners throughout the region. In this time of transition at NBR, we remain convinced that supporting the United States’ unique role in Asia with advanced research is still our core mission.
Our programs examine the critical policy choices that arise from challenges to the rules-based order, ranging from political and security issues to trade, innovation, energy, and the environment. We are working toward ever closer integration of our research projects to ensure that we address these topics in a comprehensive way, free from partisan bias and with a firm focus on informing policy outcomes. Our robust set of next generation programs provides training and development opportunities to young and midcareer professionals to ensure that we can continue to serve decision-makers for decades to come.
As we prepare for the new year, we look forward to partnering with you on future projects and initiatives, and invite you to get involved with our work:
- Attend our public events in Seattle or Washington, D.C., and bring a colleague or friend who would benefit from NBR’s high-quality programming. Sign up to be notified of events!
- Subscribe to our publications, and share them with colleagues and students who would benefit from our trusted research.
- Join our network for access to our exclusive events and programs, and recommend someone you think would also benefit from joining our network. Let us know of your interest!
Each tax-deductible gift of $5,000 or more received before December 31 will result in a personal invitation from me to join our inaugural President’s Circle alongside like-minded business and community leaders. Your generosity to NBR this holiday season is deeply appreciated.
