How Abenomics Works

The greatest structural issue facing the Japanese economy is the rapidly progressing aging society and a shrinking population, yet we see this challenge as an opportunity.

Demographic change is actually a social challenge that will soon be shared by most developed countries. Japan will commit to become a pioneer in establishing a social model for other countries that will inevitably experience similar social situations in the coming years.

Boosting productivity through “Supply System Innovation” and “Human Resource Development Revolution” are the keys to keeping the virtuous economic cycle going.

How Abenomics Works

Rigorously implement comprehensive reforms to achieve sustainable growth and reach a nominal GDP of 600 trillion yen
