Local Economic Recovery: Firsthand Accounts from Tohoku
Lecture @ Japan Society
[ Monday, September 17, 6:30 PM ]

 

The world's eyes were on Kamaishi City in Iwate Prefecture a year and a half ago when a large portion of the city was devastated by the March 2011 tsunami. A number of small and mid-sized businesses - the lifeblood of the region - have taken innovative, entrepreneurial approaches that have yielded initial successes in revitalizing the local economy.

Local leaders, Akiko Iwasaki, Owner, Horaikan ryokan, Akio Ono, President, Ono Foods Co., Ltd, and Takahiro Sasa, Deputy Manager, Industry Promotion Department, Kamaishi, as well as Takeo Kikkawa, an energy expert and Professor, Graduate School of Commerce and Management, Hitotsubashi University, will give firsthand accounts of how they have restarted their businesses against formidable odds and the challenges that continued to confront their community and others like it throughout the disaster zone.

* This program is co-sponsored by The Shibusawa Eiichi Memorial Foundation, Japan Center for International Exchange, and Asia Society, and is supported by the City of Kamaishi, The Consulate General of Japan in New York, and The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership
