Event description
Japan has been experiencing the consequences of an ageing population. What is this "Japanification" and what can we learn from it?

About this Event

For decades, Japan has experienced low growth, low inflation, and low interest rates, largely driven by an ageing population – a phenomenon termed “Japanification”. While faster growth has remained elusive despite heavy stimuli, Japan has made headway in terms of labour productivity and technical innovation. The Japanese experience holds important lessons for other countries and regions – Europe first among them.

What has led to the effects of Japanification? How has Japan addressed the challenge so far? And what can Europe and Switzerland learn from the experience?

In the final episode, Yumiko Murakami, Head of the OECD Tokyo Centre, will join remotely for a conversation with Jeffrey Bohn, Chief Research Officer of the Swiss Re Institute.

This will be a hybrid event that you can either attend in person over at the Swiss Re Auditorium or watch online. Kindly keep in mind that the Swiss Re Auditorium has limited capacity. We would like to therefore ask you to either register for the online videolink or register for the physical live event.

A free brown bag will be available at the physical event.

Door opening: 12:00

Event start: 12:30
