Press Briefing:   Achieving Economic Revitalization and Fiscal Soundness

Briefer:   Dr. Motoshige Itoh, Professor, Graduate School of Economics,
                 Faculty of Economics, the University of Tokyo


On June 10, a meeting of the Council on Economic and Fiscal Policy (Chair: Prime Minister Abe) was held, and the Outline of Basic Policies for Economic and Fiscal Management and Reform was released. The Basic Policies are expected to receive Cabinet approval by the end of June, and are based on a policy of “there can be no fiscal soundness without economic revitalization.” There is a goal of achieving positive balances for basic fiscal revenue and expenditure nationally and regionally by the 2020 fiscal year, and emphasis is also being placed on expenditure reforms for social security costs. The FPCJ has invited Dr. Motoshige Itoh, a professor at the University of Tokyo and a private-sector member of the Council on Economic and Fiscal Policy, to speak about economic revitalization and fiscal soundness. Don’t miss this rare chance!
