Abenomics: Could This Time Be Different for Japan?


What is it about the resurgence of Japan that makes things different this time? Mr Hiroya Masuda will share his views on the progress of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s administration and what to expect next, particularly with LDP’s improved legislative capacity after the upper house election.  Considering the political background, the government’s “Abenomics” policy platform will be a focal point of discussion.  How it aims to pull Japan out of deflation with particular emphasis on growth strategies that include the implementation of structural reforms as well as corporate tax cuts to enhance the potential growth rate of the Japanese economy. Mr Masuda will also address associated political issues, such as the resumption of nuclear power output, labour market reform, and the final decision on whether to raise the consumption tax and amendment of the Pacifist Constitution.
