May 31, 2011

Press Release

Features Leading Experts on Japan, Including Naoyuki Shinohara,
Deputy Managing Director, IMF; J. Kyle Bass of Hayman Capital
Management; and Greenpeace Founder Patrick Moore

NEW YORK — In the aftermath of the March 11th disaster that
paralyzed Japan and sent it reeling into recession, Bloomberg
LINK will gather authorities on Japan, leading investors,
economists, policymakers and business executives to discuss how
it can recover and rebuild at the Bloomberg Japan Conference.

The Conference, to be held on Tuesday, June 7th at the Japan
Society in New York City, will focus on how Japan will finance
its reconstruction; how it will deal with debt, deflation and an
aging demographic to combat recession; and the opportunities and
risks for investors as it attempts to rebuild once again.
Speakers will also debate the future of nuclear energy and the
large-scale insurance issues presented by this year’s disaster.

“Global investors are ready to embrace Japan as it rebuilds
itself,” said Robert Bierman, head of Bloomberg LINK.
“Participants at this conference will gain a better
understanding as to how they can participate in the rebuilding
process and gain perspective on the country’s path ahead.”

Key speakers include:

-Ambassador Shigeyuki Hiroki, Consul-General of Japan, New York

-J. Kyle Bass, Managing Partner, Hayman Capital Management, LP

-Naoyuki Shinohara, Deputy Managing Director, International
Monetary Fund

-Kiichiro Sato, President, JETRO

-Patrick Moore, Chair and Chief Scientist, Greenspirit
Strategies Ltd.; Founding Member, Greenpeace; Author,
