About the talk: While Abenomics is bravely trying to reform "old" Japan, industry is already thriving where its "new" strengths are. The world's most advanced megacity Tokyo is growing as in the 60ies, city systems and services are adopting the "Internet of Everything," and industry is venturing into booming mega cities across Asia. The presentation will show how structural reforms can work when the focus shifts from restructuring the past to conquering new opportunities.
