The Kansai Keizai Doyukai is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization comprised of leading corporations in the Osaka region of Japan. It was formed in 1946 by business leaders who shared a common desire to contribute to the reconstruction of the Japanese economy. Its members share the belief that corporate managers should be key players in a broad range of political, economic, and social issues. One of the Doyukai’s missions is to examine critical issues that relate to Japan and the Asia-Pacific region. In 1999, the Doyukai signed a partnership agreement with CBG to provide funding for an annual one-day symposium in Cambridge, the placement of fellows, and research on topics of joint interest.
Keita Niiho is the 2015-2016 Doyukai Fellow in residence at M-RCBG. He comes to the center from Osaka Gas, a major energy supplier with a core natural gas supply business in Japan, where he is a researcher on international energy markets. Mr. Niiho is a graduate of Tokyo University with a BA in economics.
