IIES is a research institute founded in October, 1983 by the initiative of Toyota Motor Corporation. Its missions are to conduct research and surveys on international economic circumstances that are critical to the development of internationalization strategies and to promote international exchange activities.
Currently, IIES is engaged in extensive research on subjects such as mid-to long-term economic, industrial, social prospects of major emerging countries, political and economic trends and outlook in Europe and United States and other developed countries. It also conducts research and surveys from a global perspective on environment, energy, future mobility, corporate strategies of global enterprises and other issues which could bring about a great change in the future economic system.
