Our chance to get the goods on the Japanese economy …

Economic buzzword of the year is "Abenomics", named after the Japanese PM Shinzo Abe, having some small success in reviving the world's third-largest economy.

As Hitachi trains' investment in the (English) northeast last week reminds us, the health of Japan - a significant export destination for Scottish produce - matters a lot.

To learn more about what Abe San is up to, we recommend the opening lecture of Stirling University's Japan Week, delivered by Jun Arima, director general of Jetro (the Japan External Trade Organisation). He will talk about Abe's "three arrows": bold monetary policy, flexible fiscal policy and growth strategy, plus more information about Japan's unsettled energy policy after the Fukushima-related nuclear switch-off.

The event, at the university's Pathfoot Building, is at 6pm on Tuesday (March 25). For more information see www.stir.ac.uk/events.
