June 8 - Ambassador Roos presented U.S. Commercial Service Certificates of Appreciation on June 6 to two Japanese companies and two business associations that work closely with the U.S. Commercial Service in Japan to promote exports to Japan by small to medium-size U.S. businesses. These certificates were presented in connection with World Trade Week, an annual event highlighted most recently by President Obama on May 21.

World Trade Week was first observed in 1933 with a proclamation by President Roosevelt, and over the years its scope has expanded to include a variety of activities that recognize the importance of international trade to the U.S. economy.

The recipients of the Certificate of Appreciation were: P.S. International Group; D.I. Engineering Corporation; American Medical Devices and Diagnostics Manufacturers' Association; and Japan Electronics Show Association.
