The US-Asia Institute was established 33 years ago to increase understanding and facilitate communication between the U.S. and the people and governments of East Asia. In 1979, Mr. Konoshima, Mrs. Kee and other Asian American leaders, established the US-Asia Institute – a nongovernmental organization to continue the work they had begun within the administration of then-President Jimmy Carter. Through the years, the Institute has maintained ties to policy makers and policy influencers in the U.S. and in East Asia. Through people-to-people exchanges at the highest levels, conferences, off-record-briefings and quiet diplomacy, the Institute has succeeded in keeping channels for dialogue open, and have carved a niche in the U.S.-Asia relationship.
