Major lectures/ seminar courses include International economics and monetary affairs, development economics, as well as international political economy. My interests in economics are not only confined to international economics and monetary economics, but also analyses on the Japanese economy and the advanced and emerging economies as well. I myself has experienced in working as a staff member of United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and an economist at a private think tank (Nomura Research Institute), during which I visited so many countries globally, over 55 countries. I have acquaintances with academic scholars and important persons in several relevant organizations/ institutions in the public and private sectors globally. I have undertaken several study tours to visit the UN/International organisations, government institutions in the US, Europe and Asia for students.
