The Japanese Economy one Year after Fukushima
/ 6.30 P.M.
On March 11, 2011, Japan was hit by the most severe natural and nuclear disaster in its history. How does the triple catastrophe bear on the Japanese economy today? The presentation will consider the economic recovery and look at the present situation in the most hit prefectures, before turning to the major challenges that Japan‘s economy is facing today. Special emphasis will be put on energy policy, government debt and the position of Japan in the world economy.
Dr. Franz Waldenberger is Professor for Japanese economy at LMU Munich.
