RIETI-CEPR Online Symposium “Exploring New Capitalism” Set for March 23


The Tokyo-based Research Institute of Economy, Trade and Industry (RIETI) has announced that it will host an online symposium on March 23 together with the London-based Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) to discuss “new capitalism” and other topics.

The Japanese government aims to realize new capitalism based on the concepts of a “Virtuous Circle of Growth and Distribution” and “Pioneering a New Post-Corona Society.” In the new capitalism, the issues to be addressed include the decline in productivity and international competitiveness of the Japanese economy, as well as climate change and the intensifying international competition over technology.

At the symposium, European and Japanese experts will discuss the new capitalism, “Climate Change and Economic Dynamism” and “Global Value Chains (GVC) Resilience in the Face of Geoeconomics Shocks,” exploring ways to solve both global and Japanese problems.
