Briefer: Mr. Kiyoyuki Seguchi, Research Director, the Canon Institute for Global Studies



With France, Germany, and Italy following the UK’s lead and announcing their participation in the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), there has been continual commentary on such topics as the increased presence of China in the field of international finance, how the AIIB will operate with the existing World Bank and Asian Development Bank, and whether Japan and the USA will join the AIIB as well.


The FPCJ has invited Mr. Kiyoyuki Seguchi, Research Director at the Canon Institute for Global Studies, to discuss the current situation and the future of infrastructure investment in Asia. Mr. Seguchi is an expert on the economies of Japan and China, and on Japan-US-China relations, and has commented in the past on the conditions for the AIIB to become an international development bank meeting international standards, and on Japan’s participation in the AIIB.
