‘Michael Banner is an event waiting to happen. He is clearly one of the brightest and most interesting young people doing ethics on the scene today. He is a first-rate theologian who promises to be a new and long-standing voice not only in England but in America. This is a good book and one that I believe will be widely read.’ Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University

Japan’s corporate governance reforms: Joint event with the alumni of HEC, École Polytechnique, Sciences Po, Edhec, Essec and Trinity College/Cambridge University. Thursday 7 March 2019 in Tokyo

Japan’s corporate governance reforms

joint event with the alumni organizations of HEC, École Polytechnique, Sciences Po, Edhec, Essec and Trinity College/ Cambridge University. Thursday 7 March 2019 19:00 in Tokyo

On Thursday 7 March 2019 we will have a joint event by the alumni organizations of several French Grandes Écoles, HEC, École Polytechnique, Sciences Po, Edhec, Essec, and Trinity in Japan on Japan’s corporate governance reforms.

Topic: Japan’s corporate governance reforms

Everyone of us who wants Japanese companies to take major decisions, e.g. in major sales, M&A, as investor, or executive or employee benefits from understanding how Japanese companies take decisions at top level. Corporate governance is about how companies take decisions, and how this decision making is controlled. Reforms were initiated by PM Abe and Japan’s Parliament since 2015, mainly driven by the very low returns on capital by Japanese companies compared to Europe and US, and by a long series of scandals. 

As the major shareholder of Nissan, Renault shares responsibility for corporate governance at Nissan, and governance of Nissan directly impacts employment in France. Thus interest in Japan’s corporate governance has suddenly shot up in France.The speaker has several years experience as Board Director and Member of the Supervisory & Audit Committee of a stock market listed Japanese SaaS, cloud and cybersecurity group, and will give a practician view of governance at Japanese companies.
