Mr. Carl Bastian

The American Chamber of Commerce Okinawa Governor,
Tourism & Hospitality Committee Chairman,
CEO of The Ryukyu World Office.

“HAISAI” from tropical Okinawa- the jewel of Japan.

I am pleased to extend a warm welcome on behalf of an ancient island & the awesome professionals at Higher Education Forum (HEF). For those of you who will be visiting Okinawa for the first time, please expect fantastic weather & magnificent memories. For everyone else- welcome back! Okinawa has missed you!

The past few years has seen Okinawa grow in leaps and bounds, mainly in terms of popularity, economic strength & also global recognition. Tourism leads the industrial charge with not only a constant and sustained increase in international & domestic visitors, but also for average length of stay, average tourist spending, visitor satisfaction levels & rate of return visits.

And once you get here you will understand why…

The culture & history of the ancient Ryukyu Kingdom is something we treasure dearly.

There are many World Heritage sites to visit within an hour of Naha.

The spellbinding scenery & precious nature is something we don’t take for granted.

You will find views of a majestic azure sea from almost any coastal vantage point.

Our elders are respected & listened to as they speak the old tongue, endured & survived the horrific past, and also carry the secrets to longevity & happiness. I have had the pleasure of working with HEF for 5 years now & am honored to be involved in making this Okinawa Conference a regular & successful event. The diversity of topics, the passion & expertise of speakers, the hunger of delegates, the professionalism of staff, all backdropped in this tropical paradise make it an event not to be missed.

I personally look forward to welcoming you all to this island I call home.
