The Embassy of Switzerland in Japan, the Swiss Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Japan and IMD Business School are pleased to announce the 5th Switzerland – Japan Economic Forum, to be live streamed on November 17, 2022.

Under the title “Sustaining Vitality: The Management of Well-Being”, this year’s Forum will bring together thought and business leaders to explore ways to achieve sustainable vitality in the workplace. We seek to evaluate the impact of well-being management on corporate performance, explore the role of cutting-edge technologies, and offer insights into effective governance and human resource management.


Pandemic, climate change, war, and radical changes in the economic environment – we seem to be in a whirlwind of crisis and unrelenting change. The word “crisis” in Japanese encompasses two meanings: danger and opportunity. Do we stand still in the face of danger? Or do we see an opportunity for positive change, transformation, and renewal? To seize such an opportunity and rise to the challenges we face as individuals and organizations, we need dynamic, positive, and powerful vitality. Over the past few years, interest in the vitality, productivity, and well-being of individuals, teams, and organizations has increased dramatically.
Academics are conducting research, innovators are developing technologies, corporate leaders are reviewing management practices, and governments are proposing new incentives. 
Join us at the Switzerland – Japan Economic Forum to take the conversation about increasing the vitality of each of us, our organizations, and society one step further.
