Unprecedented changes are buffeting countries worldwide. Demographic shifts and technological advances are impacting political alignments and economic structures in ways that can only be dimly perceived today, yet business leaders must make significant and long-lasting commitments amidst this uncertainty. The global legal and regulatory landscape is under stress as demands are made for the renegotiation of trade agreements and new responsibilities are imposed on corporate leadership. Competition for access to energy and other resources will only intensify while incumbent enterprises and new entrants will contest intellectual property rights in an effort to secure competitive advantage.
White & Case Tokyo will present our 27th Annual Back-to-Business Program Series on September 18-20, 2018 focusing on managing economic and social change toward a sustainable future. Senior business leaders and White & Case partners will offer insights on how companies can safely navigate the challenges posed by this new era of uncertainty and how they can seize the opportunities that it presents. We will also host a keynote address featuring political commentator and former diplomat Mr. Yukio Okamoto and Dr. Robert Feldman, a professor at Tokyo University of Science and senior advisor at Morgan Stanley MUFG Securities. This keynote event will be moderated by noted NHK Special Affairs Commentator, Ms. Aiko Doden.
We hope you will join us for these thought-provoking sessions about what lies ahead and our 27th Annual Reception.
Tuesday, 18 – Thursday, 20 September 2018
