What do Japanese business leaders need to know about Australia?

Rurika Imahashi, Sydney Bureau Chief for Nikkei, has the answer and will tell all in an exclusive event for AJS-NSW members and friends on March 13.

Nikkei Asia is the English language weekly publication focusing on Asia and Oceania, of Nikkei (abbreviation of Nihon Keizai Shinbun) Inc., Japan's most important media company. In addition to publishing a daily Japanese-language business newspaper with the world's largest circulation, Nikkei owns The Financial Times (London) and TV Tokyo.

Imahashi-san is not the first woman to head the Nikkei Sydney bureau. Members may remember Kaori Takahashi, who was active in our Society some years ago.

Again we will be meeting in the Canva Community Event Space, a short walk from Central Station in Surry Hills.

The talk will be followed by networking over drinks.

Registration is now open. Click to register.
