Economic and Social Research Institute
Cabinet Office

With the goal of conducting broad discussions from a global perspective on important policy issues such as non-performing loans, finance, and deflation, the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) has continuously held international conferences since 2001, with the cooperation of institutes such as NBER (National Bureau of Economic Research) of the United States.

Taking into account what has been discussed so far, as well as recent economic trends, and also expanding on last year's theme, "the beginning of new growth," ESRI held an international conference titled "Policy Options for Sustainable Economic Growth in Japan." Experts with extensive academic experience were invited from the United States and Sweden to engage in lively discussions with Japanese intellectuals to envision the future of the Japanese economy, focusing on fiscal and monetary policy.
