The Global Economy Approaching a Turning Point

We will hold our 27th International Financial Symposium titled “The Global Economy Approaching a Turning Point —Challenges for developed countries and emerging countries—” on February 25, 2019.
The global economy maintains a moderate growth but it is widely expected that it will come to a cyclical turning point sometime in 2019, and the dispersions in the GDP growth outlook are expanding among countries and regions. With this in mind we cordially invite you to a symposium in which prominent panelists from Japan and abroad will broadly discuss on the issues that both advanced and emerging countries face to maintain steady economic expansion and stabilize their financial markets.
We cordially welcome your participation in this symposium. Please fill in the form on our website. We will reply to you by e-mail with an admission ticket no earlier than February 5, Monday. Please print it out and present it at the reception desk.
