A Japanese View on World Energy Future: The Impacts of Lower Economic Growth in China and India

19 November 2014, London

JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization), London, and the Japan Society would like to invite you to a seminar on a Japanese view on world energy outlook with special focus given to analysing the impacts of lower economic growth in China and India.

Professor Ken Koyama, Chief Economist and Managing Director of the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan (IEEJ), will present an outline of the IEEJ’s recently announced Energy Outlook, and will also touch upon Japan’s recent energy policy challenges. Before discussion is opened up to the floor, comments will be given by Professor Paul Stevens, Distinguished Fellow for Energy, Environment and Resources at Chatham House, and Peter Hughes, Director of Peter Hughes Energy Advisory Ltd.

Professor Ken Koyama received his BA and MA degrees in Economics from Tokyo’s Waseda University, and his PhD from the University of Dundee where his thesis was titled Japan’s Energy Strategies toward the Middle East. He joined the IEEJ in 1986 and has held various positions within the Institute, such as Senior Economist and later Head of the World Oil and Energy Group, and Senior Research Fellow in the Energy and Strategy unit. Alongside his current position, Professor Koyama has also taught at the University of Tokyo’s Graduate School of Public Policy since 2010.
