The 6th Meeting of The Next Generation’s Round- table in Tokyo 2021-2022

The 6th meeting of the Next Generation Round Table in Tokyo (NGRT) was held at the Roppongi Hills Club on April 19th, 2022. We invited Mr. Akio Kawabata, Advisor to Accenture, Inc., as a speaker, sharing his own experiences in semiconductor technology, business, and consulting. He then discussed the semiconductor industry in Japan, economic security in Japan and the U.S., and the consulting profession.

Various opinions were raised about the factors behind the changes in Japan’s semiconductor technology in the world, the differences between Japan and other Asian, European, and U.S. countries that are increasing their presence in the semiconductor industry, and the reasons why economic security is important for both Japan and the U.S. It was a valuable time to review Japan’s semiconductor industry.
