With the current Abe government now in its fourth year, there is increasing debate over the successes of and issues with Abenomics, as well as over the consumption tax hike and additional economic measures. As the host country of the Ise-Shima G7 Summit being held in May, what message can Japan send about strong, sustainable growth of the global economy?
