The Japanese Economy in 2021—Recovering from the COVID-19 Recession (Mr. Taro Saito, NLI Research Institute)

post date : 2020.12.22

The continuing COVID-19 pandemic has had a severe impact on economic and social activity. Will the Japanese economy head toward a smooth recovery in 2021? What initiatives has the new Suga administration implemented to attempt the difficult task of preventing the spread of the virus while continuing economic activity, and how successful have they been? What policies will be necessary going forward to help the economy recover?


The FPCJ has invited Mr. Taro Saito, an executive research fellow at the Economic Research Department of NLI Research Institute, to discuss the outlook for the Japanese economy in 2021.
