Where Japan has led, the western world has largely followed, with manufacturing losing competitiveness, financial sectors hitting trouble, technological change challenging old industries, and ageing demographies imposing heavy burdens on public finances and productivity. But Japan's early experience of these changes also means that some Japanese corporations and sectors have already begun the process of adapting.
What is the potential for Japan in today's world? In this program, a group of prominent panel members including former Editor-in-Chief of The Economist, Bill Emmott, discusses the future role and strengths of Japan in this new global economy.
In recognition of growing a successful high-tech manufacturing company in the U.S., President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama invited Dr. Fujita to be an honored guest in the First Lady's Box at the 2012 State-of-the-Union Address. He received the 2013 Presidential Award for Export (President's E-Award) from the U.S. Department of Commerce and is now the Co-Chair of the subcommittee on Energy Policy within the U.S. Manufacturing Council for the U.S. Secretary of Commerce.
