Tax and Regulations Committee
After an extraordinary long period of political stability and stormy support rates for the cabinet, Prime Minister Abe faced a series of setbacks over recent months that suddenly questions the stability and assumption that Abe has many more years.
Following the cabinet reshuffle in August, Prime Minister Abe enters this Fall's Extraordinary Diet session determined to stem the criticism and regain public trust. At stake are public perceptions regarding the success of structural and economic reforms designed to rescue the nation from a prolonged deflationary downturn and restore economic competitiveness, as well as his career ambition of revising Japan's post-war constitution.
On top of constitutional and work style reform, how will he rebrand his signature economic policy “Abenomics” in order to put priority on economic growth? What are the most likely policy topics in the extra-ordinary diet session? What are likely political events that will drive the agenda and what does this all mean to French and European businesses?
In this seminar, Jakob Edberg, President and CEO of GR Japan, will cut through the many layers of public perception and political expectation to get at the heart of what's really driving the political agenda and how that influences your business.
