Special Luncheon with Minister Shinjiro Koizumi
On Wednesday, September 25, 2019, the Center on Japanese Economy and Business was honored to hold a special luncheon with His Excellency Shinjiro Koizumi, Minister of the Environment, Cabinet Office, Government of Japan. At the luncheon, current Columbia University students, including many from Columbia Business School, had the opportunity to have an informal discussion with Minister Koizumi on topics ranging from student life in New York to Japan’s efforts and challenges related to climate change.
CJEB's Chairman, Professor Hugh Patrick, expressed great pleasure in welcoming Minister Koizumi back to campus because they had first met when Minister Koizumi was a student at Columbia University. Professor Takatoshi Ito, Director of CJEB’s Program on Public Pension and Sovereign Funds and CJEB’s Associate Director of Research, introduced Minister Koizumi.
The event was cosponsored by the Center on Japanese Economy and Business, Columbia Business School and the School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University.
