Notice (Press Briefing): Japanese Economy after the Great Earthquake (April 27, 2011)

post date : 2013.08.19

Press Briefing:“Japanese Economy after the Great Earthquake”


Professor Hiroko Ota, National Graduate Institute of Policy Studies


One month after the Great East Japan Earthquake, the disaster-hit regions have already started to move steadily toward recovery. On the other hand, damage to production facilities, the impacts of the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant including the subsequent spread of harmful rumors, power supply shortage, and the financial burden of the recovery are expected to have a very serious effect on the Japanese economy. Japan had been suffering from a long economic downturn even before the disaster. How will the country get out of the national crisis and get its economy back on a growth track?


Professor Hiroko Ota of the National Graduate Institute of Policy Studies, who served as State Minister in Charge of Economic and Fiscal Policy under Prime Ministers Shinzo Abe and Yasuo Fukuda, will talk about the road map toward the recovery of the Japanese economy.


Time & Date: April 27 (Wed), 15:00-16:30


Place: Foreign Press Center/Japan (6th floor, Nippon Press Center Bldg.)


Language: Japanese (with English interpretation)



Japanese media, FPCJ supporting members and embassy representatives may also attend the briefing as observers (admission free).
