The Pandemic and Crisis in Ukraine—The Changing International Order and Japan’s Growth Strategy (Mr. Yasuhide Yajima, NLI Research Institute Chief Economist)

post date : 2022.05.20

While steps towards living together with COVID-19 are being taken throughout the world, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has had a major impact on the international order and the global economy. With the world undergoing a major transformation as it faces new crises and issues, what challenges will Japan’s society and economy face in the future? Is it possible to overcome these challenges and develop a scenario for economic recovery and sustainable growth?


The FPCJ has invited Mr. Yasuhide Yajima, chief economist at the NLI Research Institute, to discuss the challenges facing the Japanese economy, and its outlook. This will be the third FPCJ briefing by Mr. Yajima. His keen insight into the COVID-19 pandemic and the Japanese economy was well-regarded in his May 2020 and June 2021 FPCJ online briefings.
