Topics[Intellectual Collaboration Group to Promote Market-Oriented Economie]

1. In the spring of 1996, several scholars, former government officials, executives of banks and trading houses, and manufacturing company personnel formed a volunteer group in Japan. Calling itself the'Intellectual Collaboration Group to Promote Market-Oriented Economies,'this group pursues "'intellectual collaboration" with members of former socialist economies seeking to move toward market-oriented economies and away from the disarray of their current economic systems.It is expected that through the accumulated experience generated by this group, Japan's contribution to former socialist economies could cover a wider range of subject and become more sophisticated and effective in understanding the economic and social conditions of the respective economies.

  3. EXCHANGE OPINIONS IN SPECIFIC AREAS WITH VISITING LEADERS FROM FORMER SOCIALIST COUNTRIES

3. From the fields of academia, government service and industry, we have invited those holding a strong interest in "intellectual collaboration" and having experience in the mechanisms of free market economics.These individuals have abundant experience and have honed their expertise in their "primary occupation" such as university professors, government officials, executives of banks and trading houses, and manufacturing companies.
