The FPCJ has invited Dr. Koichi Hamada, Special Advisor to the Cabinet and Tuntex Professor Emeritus at Yale University, to discuss Abenomics and the Japanese economy on the day (November 17) that the preliminary figures for quarterly estimates of GDP for July to September were announced. These figures were expected to be a key factor for the Japanese government to decide whether or not to raise the consumption tax to 10% in October 2015 as planned.
The briefing had a total of 58 participants, including 29 journalists from Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, ROK, Singapore, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the UK and the US.
