Issues over accepting more foreign workers


Briefer: Mr. Jun Saito, Senior Research Fellow, Japan Center for Economic Research


Against the background of declining labor force caused by low birth rate and rapid aging, debate on whether to accept more foreign workers has become more active. In addition, there are several issues which require a quick response, such as the shortage of manpower for the reconstruction projects of the Great East Japan Earthquake and for the construction demand associated with the coming Tokyo Olympics, and also in the area of long-term care where need for the service is expanding due to the advent of the super-aging society. The government’s response is attracting attention.


FPCJ has invited Mr. Jun Sato, Senior Research Fellow, Japan Center for Economic Research, who also served as the Director-General of the Economic Research Bureau of the Cabinet Office during 2007-2012, to talk on the “Issues over accepting more foreign workers”.


We look forward to your attendance.


Date & March 28 (Fri), 2014, 14:00-15:30


Place: Foreign Press Center/Japan (6th floor, Nippon Press Center Bldg)
