What is SEUS-Japan?

Created in 1976 by former Georgia Governor George Busbee, the Southeast U.S.–Japan Association (SEUS-Japan) was established to promote trade, investment, understanding and friendship between Japan and the southeastern United States. Member states include Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, and SEUS-Japan has a Japanese counterpart, the Japan-U.S. Southeast Association. Both memberships include top business leaders and government officials. An annual conference between the two associations is held on a rotational basis in Japan and the southeastern U.S. Each of the seven states serves as “Host and Co-Host State” for a two-year term and assumes leadership of SEUS-Japan during that period. The state of Georgia hosted the first annual joint meeting in Atlanta in 1976,and will host it again this year.


The 42nd Annual Joint Meeting at the Westin Savannah Harbor in Savannah, Georgia October 20-23, 2019, promotes business-to-business matchmaking, trade and investment and knowledge-sharing among the participants.
