Nikkei reported on Prime Minister Abe’s plan to attend the World Economic Forum that will begin in Davos, Switzerland, on Jan. 22. The paper predicted that in his first appearance at the major economic confab in five years, the premier is likely to underscore Japan’s commitment to contribute to the sustainable growth of the global economy by taking pump-priming measures to prevent the planned hike in the consumption tax in October from slowing down the Japanese economy. He is also expected to emphasize the importance of maintaining and promoting free trade. The daily added that Abe’s participation will lay the groundwork for his chairmanship of the G20 this year.
