Webinar on the current shape of Japan
You are invited to join the webinar session hosted by SuMi Trust Group.
Do you ever wonder what is the current shape of Japan with the yen depreciation and its forecast for 2023?
For this session, Mr. Hiroyuki Ueno and Mr. Hiroshi Takeuchi will share local information which is difficult to obtain outside Japan. Such as what are the changes in Japan in 2023 to deal with the creeping inflation and which sectors in the real estate market are interesting and drawing attention from foreign investors.
Mr. Hiroyuki Ueno Session
Japan is still maintaining zero interest policy. Due to the differences in the central banks’ monetary policies, the Japanese yen is depreciating and the government/Bank of Japan (BoJ) intervened in the FX market. On the other hand, inflation is creeping up in Japan as well. The governor of BoJ will change the next April but does it affect its easing stance? At the 1st session, Mr Ueno will share local information which is difficult to obtain outside of Japan. He has a strong network with government officials/staff of the BoJ.
Mr. Hiroshi Takeuchi Session
On the back of the yen depreciation as well as its relative valuation, the Japanese real estate market is drawing the attention from foreign investors. Will this continue? Which sector/area is interesting? Mr Takeuchi, who has been engaging global investors to invest in Japanese real estate, will introduce the current trend in the Japanese real estate market and investment opportunities.
