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.”
