How will new U.S. policy priorities and changing global realities shape Japan's economic fortunes? One of the first actions of Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, was to withdraw from the TPP. Japan, one of the strongest export and import partners of the U.S., is suddenly back to square one.
What is next? A new bilateral agreement? How are Prime Minister Abe and Japan Inc. reacting to this change and the newly presented challenge? As corporate leadership continues to focus on raising productivity and global competitiveness; public policy is dictated by a strong pro-business and pro-entrepreneurship philosophy with Prime Minister Abe on his second legislation period, strongly pursuing his Abenomics.
Learn how demographic destiny is not a negative but a powerful positive force for both domestic demand and innovation; why public debt, central bank action, and the negative savings rate combined will create an unprecedented industrial and corporate change; where your company can profit from Japan's structural upturn; and what forces could disrupt and delay Japan's potential for prosperity.
