The topic of this year's McGill Japan Forum is "New Wave of Globalization of Japanese Companies" and will be a panel discussion (in English) on the globalization of Japanese corporations and current challenges for Japanese corporations in the global economy. How is it different from past rounds of internationalization? What effects will it have on companies and employees?

  • Ryo Hirooka, CFO, Hoya Corporation
  • Francois-Xavier Leinhart, Senior Managing Corporate Officer, LIXIL Corporation, CEO LIXIL Kitchen Technologies
  • Quentin O'Mahony, General Manager, JAL CAE Flight Training

This will be followed by the MAAJ Shinnenkai where you network and share your thoughts on globalization. Food and four drink chips are included in admission. Further drink tickets may be purchased at the door for JPY 500.

Guests and members of the general public are welcome. You may attend either the Forum or the Reception or both.
