Broadcasters led with reports on the finding from a survey conducted by the Internal Affairs Ministry that the number of long-term unemployed people reached a monthly average of 660,000 from July to September, up 180,000 from the same period last year (NHK), and the arrest of an 89-year-old man who rammed his car into a supermarket, killing one person and injuring two, in Osaka yesterday (NTV, TBS, Fuji TV, TV Asahi). 

 

Major front-page news in national dailies included a GOJ idea of allowing certain foreign laborers to work in Japan “indefinitely,” this year’s annual U.S. congressional report on China warning of the PLA’s possible invasion of Taiwan, the Kishida administration’s economic stimulus package focusing on massive investment in the development of domestic vaccines for emerging infectious diseases and advanced technology, the launch of a new U.S.-Japan framework for economic and trade cooperation, and a GOJ plan to increase wages for nurses.
