post date : 2022.11.25
In 2021, the number of births in Japan was 842,897, the lowest number since 1899, marking the sixth consecutive year of decline. The world is paying close attention to Japan's measures to support child-rearing, what initiatives are needed to overcome the declining birthrate, and how to steer Japan toward a society where people can raise their children with peace of mind.
The FPCJ has invited Mika Ikemoto, advanced senior economist at The Japan Research Institute, Limited, who has long studied child-rearing policies, childcare support, and measures for declining birthrates in Japan and other countries, to speak on this topic. She has also made various proposals regarding the Children and Families Agency, which will be established in April 2023.
The briefing had a total of 20 participants including journalists from Brazil, France, Singapore, Turkey, and US.
