Delaware, Ohio -- Toshi Amino, a retired executive vice president of Honda and Ohio Wesleyan University’s new executive-in-residence, will present the Woltemade Center Lecture at 3:10 p.m. on Wednesday Sept. 21 in the Bayley Room in Beeghly Library. The lecture, titled "The Shrinking and Aging Population in Japan," will examine the ways in which changes in population will affect Japan’s labor force, and the future of the Japanese economy. Students and community members are welcome to attend.

During his nearly 30 years with Honda, Amino worked on many assignments in Japan and the United States. He moved to Ohio in 1981 to be involved with the construction of Honda’s first American auto plant in Marysville, where he worked as executive vice president until he retired in 1995. Since his retirement, he has taught at Kansai University of International Studies in Japan, The Ohio State University and OWU. Currently, Amino is also serving as executive-in-residence at OSU’s Fisher College of Business. Outside of his career, Amino is associated with various organizations such as the Japan-America Society of Central Ohio, Kyoto Non-profit Center and Boy Scouts of America.
