The Tuesday editions of all national dailies wrote that the Japan Business Federation, also known as Keidanren, presented a set of proposals on Monday aimed at normalizing Japan’s economic activity now that vaccination is making steady progress. One of the proposals was to exempt fully vaccinated foreign travelers from Japan’s mandatory 14-day quarantine upon entry. The business lobby is hoping that if the proposal is adopted, it could increase travel to Japan and help boost economic activity. Keidanren also called for reducing the quarantine period for unvaccinated travelers to no more than 10 days. Masakazu Tokura, the head of the business lobby who delivered the proposals to Prime Minister Suga on Monday, told reporters that the prime minister expressed a positive view about the proposals.
