2020 Fall Bestowal of Decoration
Senator Charles Ernest Grassley

 On November 3, 2020, the Government of Japan, on behalf of his Majesty the Emperor of Japan, announced the recipients of the 2020 Fall Imperial Decorations. Among the recipients is Senator Charles Ernest Grassley, who will receive the Grand Cordon of the Order of the Rising Sun, in recognition of his significant contributions in strengthening bilateral relations and promoting friendship between Japan and the United States.

 Senator Grassley, through his long service in the US Senate, has displayed strong leadership in deepening the bilateral ties between Japan and the US. As Chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance, Senator Grassley has also played an important role in strengthening our economic relationship, which culminated in the bilateral trade agreement in 2019.

 This is yet another opportunity to reaffirm the significance of our alliance, to which leaders like Senator Grassley have been a long-standing supporter. We have benefited greatly from Senator Grassley’s friendship to Japan, and wish to extend our deepest gratitude at this wonderful occasion.
