Japanese Consul-General Akihiro Aoki of the Japanese Consulate in Anchorage graciously invited mt wife Marlene and I for dinner at his official residence in Anchorage's Geneva Woods area. Representative Ralph Samuels joined us.

We gained insight to Pacfic Rim trade issues with Japan and other Pacific Rim nations. This information was especially helpful to me as a member of the House Special Committee on Economic Development World Trade and Tourism. Alaska needs to seize opportunities for increased exports with these nations. Alaska is sited at the crossroads of the world between the Lower 48 and Asia. We should develop our opportunities.
