The Japan Ship Machinery and Equipment Association (JSMEA) and Maritime Reporter & Engineering News hosted a reception on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at Minute Maid Park in Houston in conjunction with the Offshore Technology Conference. More than 200 guests from around the world enjoyed hospitality at the ballpark in downtown Houston, and a highlight of the evening was Nippon Foundation Chairman Yōhei Sasakawa delivering the first pitch of the game with a perfect strike down the middle of home plate.

Earlier in the day Maritime Reporter & Engineering News had the opportunity to inverview Chairman Sasakawa on a number of key issues the foundation is spearheading related to the world's oceans. Immediately following the interview, Nippon Foundation and DeepStar signed a memorandum of understanding to facilitate the transfer of offshore drilling expertise to Japan, as the country explores news technologies and techniques to discover and recover natural resources off its shores.
