Information Access Working Group

At CULCON XVII, the CULCON panels agreed on the importance of the quality and quantity of discourse between the two countries, pointing out the need for increased flow of information. The panels agreed that, “such flow is important to mutual understanding and harmonious bilateral relations.” In order to address specific areas for improving information access, the panels agreed to form a working group.

The activities of the working group were concluded at CULCON XIX, held in Okinawa in February, 1999. Substantial ongoing activities are being carried out by many groups in Japan and the United States.
