RECAP
The first Luncheon meeting of the new year was held on Thursday 17th January at the Capitol Tokyu Hotel.
Our guest speaker was one of the most respected analysts of the Japanese economy, Mr. Robert Feldman, Chief Economist at Morgan Stanley Japan.@
Mr. Feldman gave us a very good insight in the present situation of the Japanese economy, and views on the future outlook. He gave, in contrary to many voices in the media, fairly good marks for Prime Minister Koizumi's reform campaign so far. The only great failure so far has been the legal system reform.
Regarding China, Mr. Feldman also predicted, that the current weakness of the yen would soon be over.

The meeting was attended by 54 members and guests, including representatives from the other Scandinavian Chambers.
