The Japan Investment Council

From the view-point of promoting foreign direct investment into Japan, the Japan Investment Council (JIC) was established as a ministerial-level council in July 1994. The chairman was the prime minister, and the vice-chairman was the minister of state (for economic and fiscal policy).
The JIC consented to the "Program for Acceleration of Foreign Direct Investment in Japan" in 2006. Whereas JIC had consistently promoted FDI policies, the government of Japan has decided that ad hoc ministerial meetings on FDI promotion policy replace existing Japan Investment Council (JIC). This is a part of an overall policy amendment adopted by GOJ regarding the management of its ministerial-level meetings.
