The Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) will soon set up a committee under LDP policy chief Fumio Kishida to study the idea of designating soft power as a national strategy. Soft power includes sharing Japanese culture and art with the international community. Soft power has been an area of interest for Kishida, who earlier served as foreign minister. It seems that Kishida wants to use the committee to plan policies with an eye toward the post-Abe period. (Abridged)
