Participated in Economist's Japan Summit as a panelist
The Economist's Japan Summit is a session which is considered to be one of the pinnacles of economic/ political summits in Japan. This year, The Economist invited Haruhiko Kuroda (governor of Bank of Japan), Yuriko Koike, (governor of Tokyo Metropolitan Government), and Katsunobu Kato (minister for promoting dynamic engagement of all citizens). Shinzo Abe (prime minister) and Hirosghige Seko (minister of economy, trade, and industry) could not participate this year due to the special Diet session. The session talked about Japan's future with various important figures from around the world.
