Economic and Social systems

Our goals

Recent worldwide economic changes have greatly impacted Japan, but Southern Kyushu is geographically far from large urban financial zones, resulting in regional problems such as the fragility of its industrial infrastructure, an information technology gap, depopulation, and an aging society. These problems have emerged at the same time as economic cooperation has been promoted based on the region’s close geographical and historical links with other Asian countries, which is another major challenge. Members of this local society are groping for ways to overcome these obstacles.

In order to appropriately deal with regional economic and social issues and advance international collaboration, it is essential to clarify the structure of economic society and master analytical methods, to foster the ability to propose economic policies, to acquire a global perspective on the worldwide economy and international development, and to cultivate people’s ability to deal with changing local corporations and trends in regional society. We aim to train the personnel needed to achieve these goals.
