Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Sept. 8: The History of Japan-Indiana Trade ... and what we can learn for today's challenges

Larry Ingraham and John Clark of the Sagamore Institute discuss how Indiana's relations with Japan have developed over the years, and whether it tells us anything we can use today

When: Friday, September 8 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Where: Sagamore Institute for Policy Research 340 West Michigan Street Indianapolis 46202

Sagamore Institute for Policy Research will release the findings of its most recent policy report, “The Indiana-Japan Partnership: Telling the Story.” Senior Fellow and Director of International Trade Larry Ingraham will discuss the findings of the study he conducted to record the history of Japanese investment in Indiana and what effective economic development tactics are relevant today. I will put this story in a context that helps us understand immigration with Mexico and trade with China.

Earlier this year, SIPR launched an important project aimed at documenting the history of how the first wave of Japanese investment came to Indiana during the years 1983-1988, why other waves followed, and how the Indiana-Japan relationship has transformed our state. SIPR Senior Fellow Larry Ingraham has researched the history of Japanese investment here in Indiana, addressing such questions as what made Indiana so successful relative to other Midwestern states; what made specific communities so successful; and what effective economic development tactics of that period are relevant today. The product of this study is the latest SIPR Policy Report, “The Indiana-Japan Partnership: Telling the Story.” This Policy Report is the first paper to be released under the auspices of the Orr Initiative at SIPR, and is especially timely as Indianapolis will be the host of the 38th annual joint conference of the Midwest U.S.-Japan Association and Japan-U.S. Midwest Association from September 10-12, 2006. The release of the SIPR Policy Report will coincide with this conference.

If you would like to attend this event, please e-mail your name, affiliation, address and phone number to Pat A. Hasselblad (pat@sipr.org) or telephone 317-472-7824 by September 5, 2006.

There will be a charge of $10.00 to attend this event.
This event is complimentary for members of the SIPR Founders’ Club and SIPR Patrons.
