More than seven and a half years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident. Steady progress has been made towards the reconstruction of Fukushima, the repopulation of surrounding areas, and the decommissioning of the plant, of which Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (TEPCO) must shoulder ¥16 trillion of the ¥22 trillion, the total estimated cost of the accident. Meanwhile, with Japan having fully liberalized its electricity and gas retail market, the business environment surrounding TEPCO is undergoing a major change. In the long term, TEPCO foresees a decrease in demand for their power service and increased competition among utility companies. In this program, Naomi Hirose, who endeavored to manage the Fukushima incident and spearheaded reform as President of TEPCO from 2012 to 2017, shares his insights on the current situation in Fukushima, lessons learned and implications from the accident.

Speaker:
Naomi Hirose, Executive Vice Chairman, Fukushima Affairs, Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings

Presider:
Gerald Curtis, Burgess Professor Emeritus of Political Science, Columbia University; Director, Toyota Research Program, Weatherhead East Asian Institute; Distinguished Senior Research Fellow, Tokyo Foundation; Member of the Board of Directors, Japan Society
