The Prime Minister of Japan promised to take measures to increase salaries and the inflow of investments into the country.

Against the background of global price growth, Japan intends to promote higher salaries in the public and private sectors, as well as take measures to attract investment and develop the production of advanced products in the country. This was announced on Monday by Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, delivering a keynote speech at the general plenary session of both houses of parliament.

"During this month, we will develop comprehensive economic measures and do everything possible to reduce the impact of high prices on people's lives. We will promote comprehensive reforms to solve three tasks: raising wages, promoting labor mobility and investing in human capital. In addition, we will contribute to strengthening the economic structure by using a weak yen. We will work on the placement of factories for the production of semiconductors and batteries, the return of companies to Japan, the expansion of exports of agricultural, forestry and fisheries products," he said.

In particular, Kishida noted that over the next five years, Japan will spend about 1 trillion yen ($6.9 billion at the current exchange rate) on state support for individual retraining. At the same time, according to him, the main problem for Japan now continues to be the rise in energy prices. He noted that this problem will have a negative impact on the economy at least until the spring of next year.
