Minister of Economy, Tradeand Industry
"New Growth Strategy and Global Outreach"
Formulate energy policy, implement the nation's growth strategy and strengthen competitiveness of Japanese industries…etc, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) has a lot of tasks on its plate.
How does METI prioritize all these and put them into practice in order to help make "Abenomics" more than just a campaign slogan? And with so many government departments involved, what exactly is METI's role in the prime minister's economic program?
METI Minister, Toshimitsu Motegi, will come to FCCJ on June 27 to share his views and take questions.
Before he was elected as a Lower House representative in 1993, the 57-year-old Harvard educated METI minister spent eight years as a management consultant for McKinsey & Company and did a brief stint as a political reporter at Yomiuri Shimbun.
Motegi holds a bachelor's degree in economics from Tokyo University, and a master's degree from the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University.
