The Global Government-to-Government Partnership (G3P) – 2020 Japanese Fellows

The Global Government-to-Government Partnership (G3P) is a professional exchange program administered by the U.S. Department of State in cooperation with Meridian International Center. Throughout the course of 3-12 months, G3P includes a professional training program, language courses, and cross-cultural opportunities. Participants develop formal training plans that include specific goals and objectives for their exchange experience in the United States.

During their stay in the U.S., G3P participants often participate in long-term fellowships and travel to cities across the country to meet with leading organizations and thinkers in their field. Once the program is complete the visitors return home to play major roles in the further development of their governments and civil society, which often involves the publishing of major policy papers and the implementation of reforms in their respective fields. The program is currently offered to Japan, though in the past it has included other countries. The current participants include:
