How Abenomics Works

The greatest structural issue facing the Japanese economy is the aging of society and shrinking of the population.
However, we see this challenge as an opportunity.

Demographic change is a social challenge that will soon be shared by most developed countries.

Japan is committed to achieving sustainable growth and becoming a pioneer in the establishment of a new social model. We call this Society 5.0, Japan’s vision for the next step in human evolution.
