Through the business district to the Imperial Palace and across the moat to enter. The Imperial Palace was once known as Edo Castle and belonged to the Tokugawa family. Visitors are only allowed into the Imperial section twice a year and we turned into the magnificent East Gardens with its Japanese garden, a woodland grove and trees representing Japan's 47 prefectures, trees and flowers in bloom right now; an idyllic place with no time to linger.

Japanese/English Three Japanese banks announced a broad alliance plan on Friday that would create the world's largest banking group. Officials of Dai-ichi Kangyo Bank Limited, the Industrial Bank of Japan Limited (I-B-J), and Fuji Bank Limited confirmed the plans, which will be implemented over the next two years, at a news conference in Tokyo. The combined assets of the three banks will exceed 1.2 trillion (t) U-S dollars, surpassing that of Germany's Deutsche Bank and Japan's largest bank, the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi. I-B-J President Masao Nishimura said he hoped the announcement would affirm Japan as a powerful player in the global market. The bank, along with Dai-ichi Kangyo Bank Limited and Fuji Bank Limited, unveiled plans for an alliance that would create the world's largest banking group - a giant with more than one trillion (t) U-S dollars in assets. The banks said they would consolidate overseas branches as soon as possible in creating the alliance, to be implemented over the next two years. In a joint statement, they said they expected to reduce the combined number of branches by 150 within five years after forming a joint holding company. Over the same time period, the banks pledged to reduce the combined payroll by six-thousand people. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "The new group aims to become one of the top five strong players in the global financial market as the representative of Japan by achieving substantial improvement in efficiency and enhancing competitiveness with this combination of the strengths of each bank in different business areas and product lines." SUPER CAPTION: Masao Nishimura, Industrial Bank of Japan President Repeated comparisons by the Japanese media was made to the Citigroup merger last year between Citibank and Travelers Group in the United States, underlining the view that the move was part of a larger international trend. Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Japan's leading business daily, said the shakeup was inevitable due to the current state of its financial industry. Reflecting a widely-held opinion, the Nihon Keizai said there were simply too many banks in Japan - with 17, counting just the ones at the top. The expected alliance would allow the banks to put their retail banking, investment banking and brokerage subsidiaries under common management and cut costs by combining overlapping businesses. The banks will also be able to cut back on information technology investment. One obstacle to the deal, however, may come from the Fair Trade Commission, which will be carefully studying the alliance to see whether it would violate the Anti-Monopoly Law. The commission declined to comment on whether it was consulted by the three banks in advance about their collaboration. If an inquiry is held, the commission will look at the combined shares of units to come under the wing of a planned holding company, as well as the impact on overall competition in the financial sector. The bank groups maintain that restructuring their relationship with each other demonstrates they are willing to tackle the country's financial woes head on. SOUNDBITE (Japanese) "I would like to seek your understanding on this reorganization not as the defensive action, but rather as the offensive measure." SUPER CAPTION: Masao Nishimura, Industrial Bank of Japan President Critics are skeptical that simply creating a bigger bank would not solve Japan's economic problems. Some believe Japanese banks need to cut down on thousands of excessive employees and keep up with their Western competition by coming up with attractive new financial products. and woefully low profit margins.

Beirut’s offshore financial services sector has been growing at an average of nearly 12 percent per year since 2006.

Natural Sound Asian financial markets are expected to herald the new millennium with a "Y-2-K relief rally" on Monday. Governments, central banks and financial institutions, power, utility, telecommunications and transport companies all had a smooth transition to 2000 - despite fears of the millennium bug. Financial institutions in Japan - including the Bank of Japan, the Tokyo Stock Exchange and other financial industries - began their final drills on Sunday. The aim - to make sure that there would be no problems from the Y-2-K computer bug when businesses return to work on Tuesday. In Japan, New Year's Day through to the 3rd of January is a national holiday and all businesses had officially closed during the period. The Bank of Japan ran tests of its BOJ-NET online system for payments and settlements with the private sector. The BOJ-NET connects the central bank with more than 500 financial institutions to handle fund transfers between current accounts, settlements of foreign exchange transactions and government-bond services. The Japanese Bankers Association ran tests of its Data Communications System of All Banks, which handles credit transfer data. The Tokyo Stock Exchange and the Japan Securities Dealers Association, which runs the over-the-counter stock market, tested connections between their computer trading systems and computers at securities companies. They are planning to run similar tests on Monday. Prime Minister Keizo Obuchi on Sunday said that no major problems related to the Y-2-K glitch were reported in key services as the country moved into the new year. However, he urged his people to stay as vigilant as the government to avoid any major problem that may be caused by the Y2K-related computer glitch. After Obuchi's announcement, some problems were reported to the prime minister's Y2K headquarters. The government said some might be connected to the Y2K bug, but none was serious. Japan's Meteorological Agency reported that some of its systems displayed "100" instead of "00" when the year changed but said operations were not affected. At East Japan Railway, the nation's largest rail company, a Y2K-related computer glitch caused vending machines for prepaid train cards to stop working in 13 stations for part of New Year's Day. The machines have now been fixed.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government says it is selling, for the first time, all the electricity generated at a newly launched hydropower generation facility to a private power supply company. The Tokyo government has built a small hydropower generation plant at one of its water supply stations in Edogawa Ward. The plant uses water pressure to rotate water wheels, which produce electricity. The pressure is applied to water sent from a filtration plant. The hydropower plant is expected to generate 1.4 million kilowatt hours of electricity every year, enough to supply 420 average households. The Tokyo government began selling hydroelectricity to a Tokyo-based supplier, taking advantage of a new government program offering incentives to entities that sell power produced from renewable energy sources. Tokyo expects revenues of about 470,000 dollars a year from the new business, and plans to recoup its investment cost in six years. Officials from the Bureau of Waterworks at the Metropolitan Government say they hope to expand the business and contribute to the entire public power supply system.
