Mr. Ralph Inforzato, Chief Executive Director of JETRO Chicago, sent me the link of the video.

This video shows strong relationship between U.S. and Japan. In 2017, U.S. based manufacturing operations of Japanese companies employed 469,200 Americans, which is the highest level among all investor countries. It also says, “Japanese companies are major contributors to the growth of exports and R&D expenditures.” 

Even a Japanese, myself, did not know the strong ties, before watching the video.
