Information and International Exchange
Building on the achievements of our research and analysis, we facilitate interactions with officials and intellectuals in international institutions, government ministries, central banks and academia at home and abroad. For this purpose, we hold meetings of study groups, forums and seminars to discuss timely current topics, promote information exchange and make policy recommendations.
International Financial Symposiums are one of the biggest annual events to which we invite distinguished intellectuals from home and abroad to discuss the crucial global issues from international perspectives. These symposiums are open to the public and are free of charge. The contents of the symposium are compiled in the Occasional Papers series which are featured on the IIMA website and can be accessed at any time by anyone.
We accept visiting researchers and foreign students from other institutions in and outside of the country to promote communications and friendship with the people in the rest of the world and facilitate their better understanding of the Japanese economy. We also actively participate in international meetings and forums held abroad.
