The Abe government has made “creating a society where women can shine” one of the pillars of its new growth strategy. With women being the greatest potential power for growth to revitalize Japan, all eyes are on how action will be taken.


The FPCJ has invited Ms. Kimie Iwata, who has worked in top positions in the government and in the private sector, to speak about encouraging participation of women in the workforce as a management goal for Japanese companies.


The briefing had a total of 24 participants, including seven journalists from France, Germany, the Netherlands, ROK, Turkey and the US., and 12 embassy representatives.
