The three arrows of Abenomics have made measurable progress in Japan’s efforts to rid itself of deflation. The 57 percent rise in the Nikkei in 2013 was a sign of early optimism, but recent skepticism about the scale of structural reforms and the ability of the Abe administration to follow through has led to renewed calls for further steps to put the Japanese economy on a self-sustaining growth cycle.  

In response to investors’ questions, the Honorable Yasutoshi Nishimura, Senior Vice-Minister of the Cabinet Office and responsible for the three arrows of Abenomics, will give remarks on the progress and time frame of Prime Minister Abe’s growth strategy. Professor Heizo Takenaka of Keio University, a leading scholar on structural reforms, will also share his views. The speakers will also be joined by a panel of experts to discuss Japan’s present and future place within the global economy. 

Keynote Speakers and panelists: 
Yasutoshi Nishimura, Senior Vice-Minister for Economic and Fiscal Policy at the Cabinet Office
Paul Sheard, Executive Managing Director, Chief Global Economist and Head of Global Economics and Research, Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services
