Alabama-Japan relationship celebrated as robust bonds strengthen

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — Workforce development guru Ed Castile and six growing companies were recognized Thursday night at a ceremony that showcased the strong economic and cultural ties between Alabama and Japan.

The Japan-America Society of Alabama (JASA) dinner at the Westin Huntsville brought together leaders from government, economic development, education and culture in support of advancing the Alabama-Japan relationship.

“With over 80 Japanese companies now doing business in Alabama, it is important that we continually address the issues that are important to those companies, as well as their employees and families,” said Brian Hilson, JASA’s executive director.

“The incredible economic growth that Huntsville and North Alabama are experiencing, led in part by the Japanese automotive industry, makes Huntsville the perfect setting for our Celebration Dinner and Business Forum this week,” he added.
