Yomiuri wrote that the Japan Business Federation (Keidanren) compiled guidelines for restarting economic activity on Thursday in response to the government’s decision to lift the state of emergency for 39 of Japan’s 47 prefectures. The business lobby recommended the introduction of a four-day workweek and the promotion of teleworking as well as flexible business hours and shift work schedules as ways to ease congestion on public transportation. The federation also advised suspending nonessential business trips and conducting meetings and interviews or seminars with prospective employees online. The paper wrote that although the guidelines are nonbinding, Keidanren issued the recommendations in order to prepare for a prolonged fight against the coronavirus.
