A Prime Minister and his Legacy

  • September 08 (Tue) Registration Closed
  • 12:00 ~ 13:00
  • Free

Japan will soon have a new Prime Minister following Mr Abe’s record breaking stint in office. Mr Abe won three Lower House elections and became a familiar figure internationally – in itself, an unusual achievement for a Japanese Prime Minister. His Abenomics programme and the Three Arrows promised much – but what did they really achieve and how will history judge this interesting figure? And what happens next – where do his successors propose to lead Japan?

Date: Tuesday, September 8th

Time: 12:00 - 13:00 JST

Prepare for the New Reality with the CCCJ!

While the post-pandemic business landscape is still unpredictable, COVID-19 has accelerated trends that in ‘normal’ times would have taken much longer to take root, forced some industries to make rapid adjustments, and opened up new opportunities to build back more diverse and resilient organizations.

Discussing the Post-Pandemic Future

On March 23, the Canadian Olympic Committee dropped out of Tokyo 2020, one day ahead of the ultimate decision to reschedule. This can be seen as a metaphor for these uncertain times and the implications for international relations, business, and self-preservation. Will we see a return to normalcy in time for Tokyo 2021?
