SANTA FE — Los Alamos County was a key player in an exchange between the Japanese Consulate General of Japan in Denver, senior officials from the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) and various business and community leaders from New Mexico.
The county’s Economic Development and Public Utilities departments joined the Consulate General in co-hosting a meeting and reception at Santa Fe’s La Fonda Hotel last week with support from the State of New Mexico.
“This is a continuation of the cooperation that led to the Smart Grid and Smart House projects. Even though those are now finished, they opened up a lot of doors for cooperation between the Japanese government, Japanese industry and Japanese business and New Mexico,” said Los Alamos County Council Chair Geoff Rodgers.
Discussion topics included economic overviews of Japan and New Mexico, oil and gas development, renewable energy projects (including the Los Alamos Smart Grid project) and other potential trade sectors.
“The consulate general’s office as well as the JETRO group, were the ones who requested this meeting. They had a number of different issues they wished to discuss,” said County Administrator Harry Burgess. “They invited us due to NEDO’s relationship to us and the whole experience there.”
