Japanese staff

From 1990 to 1996,Makoto Taniguchi(Ministry of Foreign AffairsFrom)JapaneseBecame the first Deputy Secretary-General, and in 1997 became a Special Advisor to the Secretary-General.Then from 1997 to 1999Kumiharu Shigehara(Bank of JapanFrom 1999 to 2003Seiichi Kondo(From the Ministry of Foreign Affairs), but from 2003 to 2007Kiyotaka Akasaka(From the Ministry of Foreign Affairs), but from 2007 to 2011Mari Amano(From the Ministry of Foreign Affairs), but from 2011 to 2017Rintaro Tamaki(Ministry of FinanceFrom 2017, Masamichi Kono (from XNUMX)Financial Services Agency(From) serve as Deputy Secretary-General.

In addition, the Economics Department, which is said to be the most influential bureau of the OECD Secretariat,Kumiharu Shigehara(Bank of JapanBorn) has been seconded from the Bank of Japan four times since the early 1970s.After working in all positions (economist, senior economist, chief of financial research section, deputy director of policy research bureau, director of policy research bureau), he became the first Japanese to become the head of economics department (corresponding to the post of deputy minister of the economic government of OECD member countries). He was selected and worked as OECD Chief Economist for many years.No other Japanese than Shigehara has been active on the international stage for a long time as the chief economist of a major international organization.In addition, Shigehara was appointed Deputy Secretary-General in 4 after the Secretary-General, overseeing OECD cross-cutting activities on issues such as economics, finance, society and development. He has worked to deepen OECD cooperation through exchanges with ministers and vice minister-level government officials from non-OECD countries such as China and Russia. There is no one other than Shigehara who has been appointed to the political appointment post through all the positions of the economist who is the most influential profession of the OECD secretariat, not only Japanese but also from other OECD member countries.[13].. Shigehara's activities as the top executive of the OECD Secretariat are included in his book, "The Bank of Japan and the OECD-Actual Records and Discussions" (Central Public Theory Business Publishing, December 2019).Former OECD Secretary-General Donald Johnston said in the opening part of the book, "This book is irreplaceable for the OECD, which has few communicators of organizational memory."Yoshio Suzuki(After serving as the director and director of the Bank of Japan's Financial Research Institute, he also served as the director of Nomura Research Institute and a member of the House of Representatives), all of which are highly evaluated as "valuable public assets."

The ratio of Japanese staff to all staff has consistently remained below the level of Japanese investment.In addition, most of the Japanese staff are mid-career to senior-class seconded employees from Japanese ministries, government agencies, major electric power companies (in the case of NEA), etc.Therefore, in terms of young staff, the percentage of Japanese staff is significantly lower than in other countries.
