As 2020 is now up and running, industry is proactively planning for what the next twelve months – and the next decade – will have in store.

There are some seismic shifts on the horizon around AI and 5G technology – both of which will significantly impact business. And there’s a growing global sense that the private sector will move from ‘obligation to opportunity’ on the matter of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and climate change.

As for politics there are, as always, more questions than answers. Now that the Conservative party has secured a powerful new mandate to ‘get Brexit done’, we will assess how the UK can move forward to shape a new era in its relationship with Europe and other trading partners, such as Japan. We’ll also consider how the relationship between Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and US President Donald Trump could have implications for the rest of the world as we move towards the hotly-anticipated 2020 US presidential elections.

And, most importantly for us – how will the above affect Japan and its economy in the second year of Reiwa?

To make sense of the above – as well as look to other geo-political and economic issues – join us for a lunchtime presentation followed by an arm-chair discussion, led by The Economist Corporate Network Japan team, who promise to furnish us with some context to 2020.

Start the new year armed with all the latest market intelligence . . .
