Norinchukin Research Institute Co., Ltd. is a thinktank, fully owned by The Norinchukin Bank and established in 1990 through the integration of the Economic Research Division of The Norinchukin Bank and Norinchukin Research Center Co., Ltd.

Since the inception of our company we have been conducting research surveys on financial trends aiming to enhance the business structure of the credit business of the JA Group, and domestic and foreign economic studies, in addition to the basic research on forestry and fisheries, food issues and cooperatives.

As the social environment has undergone disruptive changes in recent years, the scope of our survey and research has been further expanded beyond these areas to cover regional finance and food-related industries involved in the food and agricultural value chain. We are also closely following the trends of smart farming and other rising technological innovations as well as SDGs and ESG, the efforts in solving environmental and social issues.

With these contemporary global trends in mind, we act up to positivism based on the reality of the forestry and fishing industry, in order to serve as a bridge that connects foreign countries and Japan, the business world and the industry, and urban and rural districts.

As a company of the Norinchukin Bank Group, our executives and staff will be united to endeavor to offer the value worthy of the group slogan “Dedicated to sustaining all life” to cooperatives and entire society.

We would greatly appreciate it if we could have your further support and patronage.

Yoshiyuki TAKA

President & CEO
