Although the United States is one of Japan's most important allies from an economic and security standpoint, the nature of the relationship is not symmetrical, and there are very few ongoing international exchange and cooperation projects carried out by private nonprofit organizations in Japan and in the United States acting as true partners. Taking a long-term perspective, SPF supports projects that seek to form interpersonal networks useful for shaping public opinion in both countries by promoting exchanges among researchers, politicians, and other opinion makers from Japan and the United States, as well as joint Japan-US efforts to resolve political, economic, and security challenges in the Asia-Pacific region.
