DFC CEO Adam Boehler and JBIC Governor Tadashi Maeda attended the ceremony and signed the memorandum. Chargé d’Affaires Joe Young also participated and delivered remarks.
“The U.S.-Japan relationship is stronger than ever,” Boehler tweeted shortly after the ceremony. “Through the MOU, we will combine our strengths and help solve global development issues,” he added.
