 JCER asked Asian economists on Japanese policy and other developments of the Prime Minister Abe era, as well as on their expectations for the next PM, in its quick survey. Economists’ views differed on Japan’s unprecedented loose monetary policy while they were critical on growth in the Abe era. Their evaluations were high on the policies to promote women’s activities and to increase foreign workers. Many economists expect Japan’s next PM more contribution to the stability of the region through enhanced cooperation with Asian countries and balanced relations with both the U.S. and China.

The outcome of this survey was also reported at Nikkei Asian Review. (September 14, 2020)
