Video Report: “Economic Recovery of Earthquake-Affected Areas, Five Years after the Great East Japan Earthquake” by Prof. Satoru Masuda, Tohoku University
post date : 2016.02.25
Nearly five years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake. There are a growing number of businesses in affected areas that have managed to reopen despite numerous challenges, as well as various new business ventures that have been started. However, some recovering industries such as seafood processing still face issues that have existed since before the earthquake, and further initiatives are needed for regional economic recovery through business innovation and shifting business types.
The FPCJ invited Dr. Satoru Masuda, President of the Research Center for Earthquake Restoration that was established by the Tohoku University Graduate School of Economics and Management immediately after the earthquake, to speak about the current state and the future of economic recovery in disaster-affected areas.
The briefing had a total of 20 participants, including 7 journalists from Germany, Russia, Spain, USA, etc., and 6 embassy representatives
