Year three of Economist Conferences' Bellwether Series in Japan drew an audience of 150 of policymakers, regulators, and investors from Japan’s financial sector to examine the opportunities and risks in the shifting financial landscape, within and outside Japan.

This year's programme explored the global financial landscape--Europe in particular--and what it means for Japan's financial restoration. The panels included senior representatives from the IMF, ADB, Financial Times, Chief Economists from Bank of China and Agricultural Bank of China, Japan's banking community and a closing session with Motohisa Furukawa, Minister for National Policy and Minister of State for Economist and Fiscal Policy.
