Theme:
"Restructuring in the Japanese financial world"

Guest Speaker:
Ms. Noriko Hama, Research Director
Mitsubishi Research Institute, Inc.

RECAP
Noriko Hama gave a very interesting and entertaining presentation, were she managed to make comparisions between Pavarotti, Stephen King's novel "Thinner" and the Japanese economy through the last decade. Two clear messages; the Japanese banks wil not get stronger by becoming bigger through mergers, and don't expect the yen to become weaker.

After Ms. Hama's presentation, Mr. Soichiro Yoshida, Honorary Consul of the Nordic countries in Nagano introduced the Nordic-Japan Environmental Conference 2000 to be held in Nagano in November.
