On November 1, in response to the launch of the Abe administration’s fourth Cabinet, Sadayuki Sakakibara, chairman of the Japan Business Federation, or Keidanren, said, “The lower house election results reflected strong voter support for the Abe administration to continue to exert strong political leadership in tackling important policy issues. The business community intends to fully cooperate.”


Akio Mimura, chairman of the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said, “I hope [the Abe administration] will drive structural reforms that will dispel the public’s fears for the future. I’d like it to tackle the worsening labor shortage and help increase corporate productivity in Japan to raise the potential growth rate.”


Yoshimitsu Kobayashi, chief of the Japan Association of Corporate Executives [Keizai Doyukai], said: “Clear and in-depth policy discussions will be necessary in the Diet where over two-thirds of the members are pro-constitutional amendment.”
