Japan Appoints Honorary Consul To Kentucky

Japan is strengthening its connection to Kentucky.

The Japanese Consulate-General based in Nashville has appointed David Carpenter as the Honorary Consul of Japan in Lexington. Carpenter will fill the role for a five year renewable term and represent Japan and the best interest of the 4,200 Japanese citizens and 168 Japanese owned companies located in Kentucky.

Carpenter is an American citizen but has been issued credentials as a Japanese diplomat by the U.S. State Department.

He replaces former governor Martha Layne Collins, who stepped down from the position she's held since 1991.
