OVERVIEW

JAPAN ON THE MOVE TOWARD
AN INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL HUB

Amid major shifts in international affairs, including Russia's invasion of Ukraine,
China's strengthening of control over Hong Kong, and the U.K.'s exit from the European Union,
there is renewed momentum to develop Japan
as an international financial hub for Asia and the world.

In order for Japan to establish itself as an international financial hub,
it is essential to make changes with global investors in mind,
such as improving the attractiveness of companies as investment destinations,
strengthening financial functions that link domestic and foreign funds,
and addressing ESG (Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance) issues.

Nikkei Virtual Global Forum: Japan on the Move Toward an International Financial Hub
will invite leading policy makers and experts from Japan and abroad to analyze
the impact of the turbulent global situation on international finance
and the current situation toward the realization of Japan's Financial City
concept from various angles, and to explore future possibilities.
