Where Next for Japan’s Economic Revitalization?
Date and Time
Thursday, May 1, 2014 2:00pm-3:15pm
Japan is beginning to emerge from its prolonged economic stagnation following the success of Abenomics. But successful implementation of the administration’s action plan, adopted in January, is critical for sustained economic revitalization.
Yasutoshi Nishimura, senior vice minister of Japan’s Cabinet Office, will discuss the progress in the structural reforms outlined in the plan. He will also address the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade negotiation and its potential to positively impact Japan and the region. Former State Department and White House adviser Matthew P. Goodman will provide comments from a U.S. perspective, and Carnegie’s James L. Schoff will moderate.
