    International Symposium on Corporate Governance and Japan’s Growth Strategy keynote address

    I am honoured to address you today on new growth strategies for developed economies as part of this symposium. Corporate governance is not just a question of ethics, of management or even of profitability – it’s much more important than that. Fundamentally, good corporate governance is critical to unlock investment, growth and jobs in Japan and other advanced economies.

    OECD-Keidanren Seminar on Trade and Investment: Strengthening the Third Arrow

    After several false starts, recovery from the global financial crisis seems to be finally, if tentatively, taking hold. Helped by the fall in oil prices, the outlook has brightened in recent months. While there is still a long distance to travel, the Japanese economy is responding to bold, coordinated policy action. The three arrows of Abenomics are starting to bear fruit.

    Launch of the 2015 Economic Survey of Japan

    It is a great pleasure to be back in Tokyo to present the OECD’s 2015 Economic Survey of Japan. When I launched the last survey two years ago, the three arrows of Abenomics – bold monetary policy, flexible fiscal policy and a reform-driven growth strategy – were still in their infancy.

    Tohoku Cherry Tree Planting Ceremony

    Through the Tohoku School Project, the students have developed their capacities for innovation, leadership, and co-operation. They learned how to get the information they need when there isn’t a readymade answer in their textbook or a teacher to guide them. In other words, they learned how to learn – perhaps the most valuable lesson of all! said OECD Secretary-General.

Today, Japan is one of the largest economies in the world, with GDP per head of around $50,000 and close to $1 trillion of exports of goods and services, said Angel Gurría.

    From growing inequalities to inclusive growth

    OECD analysis shows that income inequality has been on the rise in most OECD countries since the 1980s, which often means growing exclusion in the labour market, lower intergenerational social mobility, and greater polarisation in educational and health outcomes.
