Macroeconomics Policy Committee (1998/1～)
Recognizing that the Japanese economy needs to provide incentives to non-government sectors, and considering the progress toward a grayer society with fewer children, the Macroeconomic Policy Committee was formed in January 1998.
The Committee' activities involve only the Japan council, but comments from its U.S. counterpart are sought as necessary.
Mr. Koji Fukaya, Chief Ecnomist, Research Office of Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, presented the macro ecnomic report at the 43rd Japan-U.S. Business Conference held in Tokyo on November 12, 2006.
