Q&As

(Abridged)

REPORTER: The Prime Minister has completed the entire itinerary of his overseas visit. I understand that 30 companies including Rakuten were accompanying the Prime Minister on his overseas visit. Did this achieve any concrete outcomes? If so could you please explain?

CHIEF CABINET SECRETARY SUGA: Firstly, approximately 30 Japanese companies accompanied the Prime Minister on his visit. In each of the countries that was visited, a business meeting was held with the members of the companies, attended by the leaders of both countries. We believe that this meeting helped to appeal the contributions by Japanese companies through their investment and local employment. We hope that this opportunity will spur the expansion of trade and investment for both sides.
