Navigators Global has signed a one-year contract to advise Japan’s embassy on legislation in Congress and White House policies and actions that could affect the US and Japan relationship.

The pact, which went into effect on April 1, is worth $12K per month.

Navigators works closely with Takeru Terao, counselor at the Embassy’s Congressional Affairs Section.

The White House hosted a state dinner on April 10 for Japanese prime minister Fumio Kishida, who also addressed a joint session of Congress on April 11.

Navigators’ founding principals Phil Anderson, who was special assistant to VP Dan Quayle and aide to Republican National Committee chairman Lee Atwater; Christopher Cox, who worked in the Bush II and Trump White House; and Cesar Conda, chief of staff to Senator Marco Rubio, handle the Japan business.
