Content Dear members of DCCJ,

Japan will go to the polls on October 22nd. Shinzo Abe, the current prime minister, smelled blood when he announced the snap election in late September. Mr Abe is expected to win, but Tokyo’s governor, Yuriko Koike, has other ideas. Is her newly formed Party of Hope up to the task?

Taking place just four days after the election, The Economist Events’ Japan Summit will pick apart the result and examine the effect on the country and its future.
Secure your place today. DCCJ members can enjoy a 20% off the standard rate with code DCCJ3342.

We look forward to your participation.

Yours sincerely,

Leila Berkeley
Senior vice-president and Head of The Economist Events
