2 March 2007 - 12:00am

Chatham House, London



The workshop focused on the expansion of China and India and its implications for Japan, UK and the global economy. By bringing the Japanese perspective to Europe, it was possible to generate a very useful exchange of ideas and experience.

The aim of the workshop was to devise key lessons for Japan and Europe, on how to best benefit from and work with these new rising economic powers, and how to maintain a competitive edge. Panel discussions focused on trade, investment and development strategies of India and China; the sustainability of India's and China's current growth rates sustainable; and the impact and implications for Europe and Japan.
