In the four months since Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was inaugurated in Japan, his Cabinet has pushed forward in rapid succession an unprecedented series of potentially transformational economic policies. On May 3, the Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies (CNAPS) at Brookings hosted an address by H.E. Toshimitsu Motegi, minister of economy, trade and industry of Japan.

In his address, Minister Motegi described the steps necessary for Japan to continue to move forward. He touched on Japan’s growth strategy, membership in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and energy policy.

Richard Bush, senior fellow and director of CNAPS, provided a brief introduction. Brookings Senior Fellow Mireya Solís, the Philip Knight Chair in Japan Studies, moderated the discussion.
