Program Theme

The Future of Growth in Asia Pacific

Over the past half century, the Asia-Pacific region has been in the forefront of global growth. But now the longer-term economic future of the region appears increasingly uncertain. Each country faces a somewhat different set of challenges, but many share concerns about aging societies, increased labor costs and a loss of competitive advantage, reduced overseas demand, a need for broader prosperity, and serious resource and environmental problems. With these challenges and the imperative of climate change, new models will be needed for growth in the 21st century. 
The 2016 Jefferson Fellowships will focus on Asia's search for new, more sustainable growth models through sessions with experts and one another in Honolulu and by exploring economic challenges and restructuring in Japan and China. As the world's 2nd and 3rd largest economies, the success of China and Japan in finding new models will have wide reaching impacts. After decades of rapid growth, China's overall growth is falling, internal debt is rising and China fears falling into the middle income trap, getting old before it gets rich. In Beijing, journalists will explore China's efforts to maintain its growth as it shifts to a new model based more on domestic demand versus government investment, higher value-added manufacturing and innovation, and a dynamic service sector, while also addressing dire environmental degradation and the need for a broader distribution of wealth. A visit to Guiyang, the capital of one of China's poorest inland provinces but the second fastest growing province in 2015, will illustrate both the challenges as well as opportunities for new growth in China. A new high speed rail line just arrived as part of the "One Belt, One Road" strategy and it is becoming a hub for cloud computing, alternative financing and big data.
In Japan, the economy has been in near stagnation for 20 years. It also is in the vanguard of population aging with the world's oldest society. Meetings with officials, analysts and business leaders in Tokyo will explore Prime Minister Abe's monetary, fiscal, and structural reform measures intended to boost the economy out of persistent deflation. Visits in Tokyo and travel to Fukuoka-Kitakyushu will highlight some areas of focus for these reforms--promoting efficiency, greater female and elder labor market participation, investments in innovative robotics, advancements in elder care, and rural and regional revitalization. A formerly polluted steel-producing region that transformed itself, Fukuoka-Kitakyushu was designated an "eco-model city" as part of the federal government's initiatives to commercialize and share technology and know-how for environmentally sustainable growth across Asia. Discussions throughout the program will include the region's international relations and tensions; the TransPacific Partnership (TPP); and regional integration and investment measures such as China's "One Belt, One Road" and Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB).
