New Blog: Jochen Legewie Blog

On 11 April 2011 and thus exactly one month after the huge Tohoku earthquake I have decided to start this blog to monitor the next months and years and share the developments in Japan (with a focus on business and communication issues). A huge challenge lies before all of us in Japan. But it is also a big chance for Japan to regain its strength and to redefine the its locus and direction among the leading nations of this world.
These are the observations of a European in Japan who has been here for roughly 20 years and who intends to stay here much longer – to shape a bit the course of this wonderful country.
