Japan’s Global Competitiveness: Perspectives from the McKinsey Report

Japan is the third-largest economy in the world with advanced technology and highly developed infrastructure. Yet, the country has seemingly lost much of its competitive edge during the two “lost decades”. Japan may be on its way to rebound from a protracted recession, but what are major remaining impediments to further growth? What will be the key factors driving innovation and productivity enhancement in the near future? How do Japanese industries compare with their counterparts in other advanced economies? Loosely based on the McKinsey Global Institute report entitled “The Future of Japan: Reigniting Productivity and Growth”, the panel will discuss the global competitiveness of Japan’s private sector from multi-perspectival viewpoints.
