Former Japanese Finance Official to Speak at JHU SAIS

Eisuke Sakakibara, former vice minister in the Japanese Ministry of Finance, will speak at the Johns Hopkins Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) on Wednesday, 09/12 at 5:30 p.m.

His lecture topic will be "Structural Reforms Amid Recession," a timely issue as Prime Minister Koizumi is designing his government's plan for revitalizing the Japanese economy.

Sakakibara is currently the director of the Global Security Research Center at Keio University in Tokyo and a visiting scholar at SAIS. As vice finance minister, he served as Japan's leading official dealing with the country's international financial affairs during the 1990s.
