As Japan stands at a crucial juncture of economic and political transformation, we have invited 2 well-renowned speakers to share light on the intricacies of Japan’s evolving landscape for 2024.
BLCCJ, together with the CCIFJ, DCCJ, SCCJ and SpCCJ, invites you to an insightful evening of knowledge sharing, discussion and networking.


Our keynote speakers, Mr. Jakob Edberg, President & CEO, GR Japan and Mr. Philippe Avril, Senior Executive Officer, International Bankers Association of Japan (IBA) will be sharing the stage on this evening. (profiles in attachment)


What are the potential economic impacts of a declining workforce participation rate coupled with anticipated shifts in monetary policy for the year 2024?
How does Japan’s status as a trade-dependent economy affect its relationships with key partners and its role in international trade agreements, particularly in navigating trade relations with major economies like the U.S., China, and the EU, and how does participation in regional trade agreements impact its economic performance?


What could be the consequences of the recent financial misconduct allegations, considering the sharp decline in the approval ratings of Kishida’s administration?

What are the key features of Japan’s 2024 political landscape, including parliamentary elections, defense and economic policy debates, climate change actions, and diplomatic engagements in the G7 and with global partners?


Our prominent keynote speakers will elaborate on these questions and give us some hints of what to expect of 2024.

After the presentations we invite you for networking where refreshments and light food will be served.
