Activity Contents

In addition to the medium- and long-term economic, industrial, and social prospects of major emerging countries, we conduct a wide range of surveys on political and economic trends and prospects in developed countries such as the United States and Europe. Here are some of the topics we report as part of our regular activities.

Research Papers

We hold a monthly meeting to report our research results to our member companies. Members of member companies leading their respective industries will have Q & A sessions in their respective fields and will be able to actively exchange opinions.
