About the Symposium

The Milken Institute’s first Japan Symposium is an exclusive, invitation-only event convening heads of large financial institutions, senior business leaders, top institutional investors, and high-level government officials from Japan, the Asia-Pacific region, and the United States. The gathering brings together the brightest minds and most influential figures to tackle critical geopolitical, economic, and social issues facing Japan.

A full day of programming is designed to stimulate thoughtful dialogue and produce constructive partnerships that will advance Japan’s role in creating actionable solutions to economic and social challenges in the Asia-Pacific region. A mix of plenaries, breakout panels, and private sessions will engage participants in how to leverage the nation’s underutilized pools of capital to increase competitiveness, achieve growth, and enhance prosperity amidst shifting global power balances and technological advancements.
