Global Warming and Energy Challenges for Japan and the UK
10 September 2012, London
This seminar, arranged by JETRO and the Japan Society, will look at the energy and climate policies of Japan and UK and discuss their implications for investment and industry for both countries. In his keynote presentation, Professor Morihiro Kurushima, of Toyo University, will spell out the technical and international issues involved. Following this, senior specialists will talk about the two national strategies and their implications: Jun Arima, Director General of JETRO and a specialist in this sector, and Ben Golding, Deputy Director of Strategy in the UK’s Department of Energy and Climate Change. They will be then be joined in a panel discussion by representatives of companies which are directly affected by these policies and who can discuss the challenges facing modern investors. There will be ample time for discussion, questions and answers.
Whether you are an investor, an academic or a user of energy, the issues to be discussed are of fundamental importance. National governments are putting into practice the necessary actions at varying speeds but all are affected.
The seminar will conclude at 4.00 pm when tea will be provided.
