From Abenomics to Suganomics: Japan’s Economic Outlook
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
The abrupt departure of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe during a time of national and global uncertainty has left Japan’s economy at a crossroads. As Japan’s new prime minister, Yoshihide Suga faces a list of tough challenges, including tackling COVID-19 and reviving the Japanese economy, which shrank at a record-breaking rate in 2020. How is Prime Minister Suga pursuing economic reform, and what are Japan’s economic prospects for 2021? In this webinar, experts discuss Suga’s economic policies, the impact of COVID-19 on Japan, and the outlook for the Japanese economy.
