Japan'€™s New Role in a Changing Asia

31 August 2014 - 12:30pm to 7:30pm

Toyoda Auditorium, Nagoya University, Nagoya, Japan



Chatham House hosted a series of meetings to explore the third arrow of Abenomics, structural reforms, in order to promote a discussion between the public and the private sector on how Japan can, in dialogue with Europe, enhance its global competitiveness. The project focused on the implementation of these policies and the impact on sectors that are strategic for the growth of the economy of Japan and the rest of the world.

The project focused on four main themes: (1) the financial sector and Tokyo as an international financial centre, (2) the medical and pharmaceutical sector, (3) corporate governance and code of conduct reforms, and (4) investing and financing in infrastructures.

This event brings together government leaders and corporate and academic experts to discuss Japan's new role in a changing Asia; in particular, it will focus on the role of the government on the four above-mentioned policy themes, and the role of universities, corporations and Japanese civil society in confronting the challenges currently facing Japan.  

The event will be followed by a drinks reception.

Please note that the event will be held in Nagoya, Japan.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
