The Department of Labor’s Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Brent Parton visited Japan over the weekend to organize technical exchanges between American and Japanese semiconductor developers. He met with several development experts and universities to share ways to keep workforce training up to date with technological advancements.

“Learning from Japan’s proven approach to upskilling and training its workforce in this sector will be invaluable as we build a globally competitive advanced manufacturing base and create good-paying jobs here in the United States,” Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Parton said before he went overseas. 

Chuka Asike, the Principal Officer at the U.S. Consulate Fukuoka, was also looking forward to increasing international cooperation.
