Japan Update 2016

The Australia–Japan Research Centre and the ANU Japan Institute will once again co-host the annual Japan Update.

The theme of the Update this year is Reinventing Japan and is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of Japan’s current economic, social and political landscape, and to give an ‘update’ on Japan’s recent developments and future directions.

This year will focus on three key areas: the state of the economy, ‘Womenomics’, and Japan’s politics and foreign policy.

The full day’s program will be available closer to the date.

Presenters and discussants include:

  • Professor Gerry Curtis, Columbia University
  • Ms Naomi Koshi, Mayor of Otsu City
  • Professor David Vines, Oxford University/ANU
  • Mr Hideo Hayakawa, Fujitsu Research Institute, former Chief Economist and Executive Director, Bank of Japan
  • Professor Nobuko Nagase, Ochanomizu University
  • Professor Tessa Morris-Suzuki, ANU
  • Ms Kay Kitazawa, Rebuild Japan Initiative Foundation
  • Professor Bruce Chapman, ANU
  • Associate Professor Simon Avenell, Director of the ANU Japan Institute, ANU
  • Dr Shiro Armstrong, Co-Director of the Australia-Japan Research Centre, ANU
