About the Event:
Japan has got what it takes to be an economic powerhouse and global leader. In 2020/21 the domestic demand up-cycle is poised to surprise positively despite as corporate investments in future growth will accelerate. More importantly, the case for Japan as a best-in-class model for free-market capitalism is getting stronger — Japan delivers sustainable and balanced performance for all stakeholders, with rising productivity, growing global competitiveness, and cutting edge innovation. Too good to be true?
Learn why the Olympics boom will not be followed by a bust, how demographic destiny is a plus, not a minus but a powerful plus for both domestic demand and corporate innovation; how a new generation of corporate leaders can outcompete global and Chinese competition; what role public policy, government debt and the Bank of Japan play in promoting positive structural change; where Europe can learn from Japan’s experience; and what forces could disrupt and derail Japan’s path towards prosperity.
