The challenges posed by the Great East Japan Earthquake are formidable by any standard. Reconstructing the country into a more resilient society and economy is a task that requires concerted efforts on the part of government, the private sector, and academia. Based on this understanding, RIETI held a series of roundtable discussions in May and June, each time inviting a business leader with proven expertise for discussion with RIETI Chairman Atsushi Nakajima and a RIETI researcher on post-disaster reconstruction and challenges ahead.
Miyakodayori was a bimonthly Asian economic policy newsletter published by RIETI from October 2000 - September 2003. It is now discontinued. The newsletter featured the analyses of writers living in Japan or associated with RIETI.
RIETI Policy Debate aims to give rise to on-the-Web discussions and make policy proposals by presenting, in a concise and timely manner, RIETI fellows' views and proposals concerning government policies and current issues and inviting opinions from researchers, policymakers and journalists.
