Afternoon Symposium
1:30 – 4:30 pm

Although the Japanese economy is finally showing signs of recovering, the sustainability of the recovery and mounting debt in the public sector continue to raise questions. In an unprecedented roadshow with international investors, senior officials from the Ministry of Finance in Tokyo will speak on the status quo and future prospects of the Japanese economy, fiscal policy, and debt management policy. It will be an excellent opportunity to hear from the Ministry of Finance firsthand on the state of the Japanese economy.

Followed by a reception.
