From 2016-11-09 18:15 to 2016-11-09 21:00
Venue: BNP Paribas, Tokyo

Three years has passed since Abenomics first hit the headlines. Hopes were high on the expectations of an economic revival but headwinds remain as targets for growth and inflation have not been met.

The weaker yen under Abenomics did not bring about a drastic increase in exports but in turn reduced real wages and weakened consumption. Introducing negative interest rates in early 2016 did not have the desired effects and went on to face political backlash. As the public debt continues to spiral the key challenges of structural and fiscal reform remain in question. Regardless of macroeconomic challenges Japan maintains a position of global economic influence and its changing demographics brings new business opportunities.

Mr. Philippe Avril, leading the largest European bank in Japan, will share his insights on the status of the economy, the outlook and its implications for international business.
The seminar will be followed by a networking session with food and drinks.
