CEPR-RIETI Symposium

Changing Course: Multilateral Cooperation toward Green Growth and Digital Transformation

Announcement

How will the post-corona world change? Both the new U.S. Biden administration and the European Commission have positioned green growth, decarbonization and digital transformation as keys to the recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. Where are the policies of the U.S. and Europe going? What efforts are industries undertaking in each country? How should Japan respond? Experts from the U.S., Europe, and Japan, as well as industry, will explore the frontiers of green growth and DX, and explore avenues for international cooperation in the post-corona era.
