Episode #16 - Nicolas Michelon, Asia Intelligence Advisory

Nicolas Michelon is the Founder of Asia Intelligence Advisory and an Editor of Asia Power Watch. He is speaking frequently at conferences and corporate events about geopolitical trends, economic power and competitive intelligence, with a specific focus on Europe/Asia relationships. 

In this episode, that as an exception is neither Fin- nor -Tech, we evaluate the Carlos Ghosn case from an economic warfare perspective, speculate as to the future of the Renault/Nissan alliance, including future options especially on the Japanese side, as well as for the broader France/Japan trade relationship. We also take a look at how other foreign CEOs have fared in Japan, while clarifying the details of the Olympus dismissal and highlighting the Takeda success.  

Produced in collaboration with Tokyo FinTech. If you have an interesting story to share with our audience, and would like to appear on the podcast, please contact us via
