Japan 2030

Nomura supported the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) in the creation of a deep dive podcast series looking into the future of Japan and where their culture, economy, and government will be by 2030 and beyond.

  • What are the opportunities and challenges presented by Japan's ageing population?
  • How are Japan's businesses developing creativity as a management capability?
  • What is Japan's role in the new geopolitical reality in Asia?

2020 will be a landmark year for Japan. The Tokyo Olympics will draw the world's attention at a time when the country is debating its future. But how will demographic, technological and geopolitical forces shape Japan in the decade beyond 2020? A new audio-interactive from The Economist Intelligence Unit, sponsored by Nomura, explores.

As you listen, the player will surface charts, quotes, and links allowing you to dive deeper into the story.
