Abenomics has become a real game changer for Japan. For the first time in over a decade, policy makers are not just decisively pro-growth, but openly promoting deep-rooted reforms and deregulation. This panel will explore how Abenomics has impacted real-world decision-making so far, and what needs to be done to create more lasting growth and investment opportunities. In addition to real-world examples and lessons from hands-on entrepreneurs, the panel will also offer an expert insight how Germany’s Reform Agenda successfully turned Germany into a growth powerhouse.
