GR Japan launches a special policy report on Abenomics
On 24 September GR Japan cohosted a policy breakfast briefing in Singapore for senior executives and corporate affairs specialists. At the event we launched a special report – “Japan’s New Dynamic: Capitalising on Change” – produced in association with PublicAffairsAsia. The report focuses on the political and business landscape in Japan at this exciting juncture in Prime Minister Abe’s economic revitalization program.
GR Japan’s Managing Director, Jakob Edberg, examined the impact of Abenomics so far and the new momentum in Abe’s program for economic an structural reform, generated by the overhaul of the Second Abe Cabinet. He also spoke about the agenda for the upcoming extraordinary Diet session starting on 29 September. We had the pleasure to host a panel of experts including Richard Jerram, Chief Economist, Bank of Singapore, Tokuko Shironitta, Adjunct Senior Research Fellow at the NUS Japanese Studies Program and Managing Director of Hummingbird Advisories and Satoshi Iwanaga, Chairman of Eurekahedge. The event also benefitted greatly from the interesting questions from our guests and an insightful discussion focused on market entry and investment opportunities for foreign companies in Japan and the progress and problems of the ongoing structural reform.
