In the “Policy Package for Promoting Foreign Direct Investment into Japan to Make Japan a Global Hub” (which was adopted by the Council for Promotion of Foreign Direct Investment in Japan on May 20, 2016), for the purpose of fundamentally simplifying regulations and administrative procedures associated with Foreign Direct Investment in Japan, the government, mainly led by the Council for Promotion of Foreign Direct Investment in Japan, will discuss and draw conclusions within one year. Matters on which conclusions can be reached early on will be addressed ahead of others by deciding on concrete measures by the end of this year and promptly implementing them.
In response, the Working Group for Revising Regulations and Administrative Procedures had been held under the Council for Promotion of Foreign Direct Investment in Japan.
