Past Event

Building Successful US-Japan Partnerships in Healthcare

The US and Japan each have huge healthcare markets and well-developed ecosystems of sophisticated global life science companies that are building products, delivering care and driving innovation in the industry. These companies can be very competitive with each other – but they are also eager to find opportunities for collaboration that help them expand their capabilities. Building successful cross-border partnerships between Japan and the US can be daunting.

This program will feature three speakers with decades of practical experience in the healthcare field who will share three different perspectives on US-Japan collaboration. They will also reveal their secrets to success – as well as common pitfalls to be avoided.
