Lecture "PostFukushima Japan: Learnt Lessons and Recovery Perspectives"

Madrid and Barcelona | |

Six months after the tragedy the Japanese people went through, Dr. Takatoshi Ito will offer a lecture about the impact of this crisis, the current challenges the government must face, Japanese companies and society, and the possible future scenarios.

During the lecture, this professor will approach several aspects linked to the catastrophe which are interesting for the international society, as well as for the future of Japanese economy, energetic policies or the role of Japan in the world. The lecture will be an excellent opportunity to have information about these issues and will be followed by questions and answers open to the attending public.

Dr. Takatoshi Ito is currently professor at the Tokyo University, after having been Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs at the Ministry of Finances, adviser for the International Monetary Fund and member of the Council of Economic and Fiscal Policies of the Prime Minister of the Government of Japan. As a university professor he has taught at many Japanese and North American institutions, such as the Hitotsubashi University, the Columbia Business School and the Harvard University. Moreover, frequently contributes with articles in serveral specialised newspapers, such as the Nihon Keizai Shinbun or the Financial Times. Among other awards, we highlight the Golden Medal of the Government of Japan received this year for his academic merits.
