The Future Of The Japan Mega Companies
Japan pulled itself out of the ashes of a devastating world war to become the worlds second largest economy. This impressive achievement was not just from the hard work and team work of many people, it was also under girded by a number of powerful Japanese corporate groups made up of companies in trading, heavy equipment, real estate, consumer electronics, elevators, finance, and many other areas of business. Recently many foreign firms have come into the Japan market and diluted some of the mega company’s power. However, Japan-based firms still show their financial strength in transactions such as Nikkei’s acquisition of the UK-based Financial Times, and Takeda Pharmaceutical’s active buying of firms around the world.
In the November CEO Insights meeting, we will welcome Mr. Yoshihiko Kawamura, Senior Vice President and Executive Officer, Chief Strategy Officer, General Manager of Investment Strategy Division and Future Investment Division of Hitachi Ltd. Mr. Kawamura has extensive experiences both in Japan and by representing large firms such as Mitsubishi Corporation and The World Bank in their global business development experiences as well. He is a Cambridge University-educated economist, while finished AMP at Harvard Business School.
Join us for this off the record discussion about the future of Japan Mega companies and a good discussion about the constantly moving global market place.
