About the Speaker

Hon. Kenichi Okada assumed his current position of Consul-General of Japan in Chicago on October 14, 2019. The jurisdiction of the Consulate-General of Japan in Chicago covers 10 states in the Midwest and Great Plains: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. This is Mr. Okada’s sixth overseas assignment, and his previous postings include the Embassies of Japan in China, the U.S., and the Republic of Korea; the Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association in Taipei; and the Consulate-General of Japan in Shanghai. In the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Tokyo intermittently from 1994 to 2018, Mr. Okada acted as the expert on Asia with a focus on China and North Korea at the Asian Oceanic Bureau, the Intelligence and Analysis Service, and the Minister’s Secretariat. Mr. Okada joined the Ministry in 1988 and he studied at the University of Tokyo, Peking University, and Harvard University.
