Hiroaki Kuwajima directs the economic policy think tank at Aoyama Shachu Corporation. He uses his background in business to help the organization make Japanese economic policymaking more transparent; open to public debate and participation; and based on independent, quantitative analysis. His fellowship focused on US economic reform initiatives; how the public and private sectors jointly shape industrial and economic policy-making; and domestic variables with the potential to affect global geopolitics, such as shale-gas production and trade policy. He also studied the national policy-making influence of key economic sectors, including energy, manufacturing, and information technology.
