NHK’s “Nichiyo Toron” featured a live debate by policy affairs chiefs of major political parties on key agenda items in the ongoing Diet session, including pension reform, the TPP, and “rush to the rescue” operations by SDF personnel in South Sudan. In response to opposition representatives’ insistence that the GOJ should give up on enacting the TPP legislation given that President-elect Trump has made clear his intention to withdraw from the regional free trade deal, LDP Policy Research Council Chairperson Motegi emphasized the importance of obtaining parliamentary approval during the current Diet session  to demonstrate Japan’s strong commitment to advancing free trade and reining in protectionism irrespective of the next U.S. administration’s trade policy.
