The purpose of JapaNetwork is to gather with individuals that come from various fields such as business, politics, government, art and education in the community to promote Japanese culture.
FIU Asian Studies Program Director, Dr. Steven Heine, holds meetings with participants of JapaNetwork to brainstorm ideas as to how we can share Japan-related information within the community, as the main goal of JapaNetwork is to become a central location to network and establish connections with different organizations in South Florida.
If your organization or business is interested in joining JapaNetwork, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
