Japan SPOTLIGHT July/August 2014 issue
COVER STORY: METI's White Paper on International Economy & Trade
It is a tradition every summer that we highlight METI's White Paper on International Economy & Trade. For this issue, of course, the focus is on White Paper 2014.
Assessing the world's economic performance during these past five years since the financial crisis, it is clear that all the major economic powers are pursuing different growth strategies to restore their economies after the global recession. Japan is thus not the only country planning and devising a growth strategy. The third arrow of "Abenomics" may well be reexamined against this background of various efforts by major nations to create a better business and economic environment for their growth.
METI's White Paper 2014 highlights in this regard different regions' growth strategies and gives the Japanese growth strategy an international perspective.
