Role of Regional Banks in Local Development

A panel discussion on "The Role of Regional Banks in Regional Development" (session partner: Nihon Unisys, Ltd.) will be held within the 9th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields, hosted by LIVANES (March 6-7, 2020 (Friday and Saturday)).

The 9th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/conference/hic2020/

  While the crisis over the concentration of business in Tokyo is being discussed in various places, regional banks are playing a role in promoting regional development by taking root in their local communities and revitalizing their industries. As the Cabinet approved the "Long-term Vision for the Creation of New Towns, People, and Jobs" and the second phase of the "Comprehensive Strategy for the Creation of New Towns, People, and Jobs" in 2028, regional development is seen as an important factor that could influence future trends in the Japanese economy. In this context, some regional banks are pursuing a strategy of identifying and fostering the science and technology accumulated in academia as the nucleus for the creation of industries from local regions. We will discuss the future of regional banks in regional development by inviting a person in charge of the regional tech planter promoted by RIVANES, who is active as a partner in industry creation by discovering seeds, fostering venture companies, and promoting the participation of local companies in projects.

We will have a program of discussions among researchers, start-ups, and large companies from a variety of perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session.
Audience members are invited to attend the conference. Please visit the conference website (see below).
