Basic Policies for Economic and Fiscal Management 2019 and Future of Japan’s Economy (Prof. Shumpei TAKEMORI, Keio University)

post date : 2019.07.02

Japan’s Basic Policies for Economic and Fiscal Management and Reform were approved by the Cabinet. While these Basic Policies maintain that the consumption tax rate will increase in October this year, they also clearly state that “flexible macroeconomic policies will be taken without hesitation” if the risk of an economic downturn becomes imminent. It includes policies to support approximately one million members of the “employment ice age” generation, with a target goal of increasing the number of full-time employees by 300,000 over three years, as well as measures such as ensuring employment up to the age of 70.


The FPCJ has invited Dr. Shumpei Takemori, a professor at Keio University and a private sector member of the Council on Economic and Fiscal Policy (chaired by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe) that organizes the Basic Policies, to discuss the 2019 Basic Policies and the future of Japan’s economy.
