1. G20 Japan and its aiming “human-centered future society”
Japan hosts its first ever G20 Summit and Ministerial Meetings in 2019, a decade after the 1st meeting on the 2008 financial crisis. Japanese PM announced that Japan is determined to lead global economic growth by promoting free trade and innovation, achieving both economic growth and reduction of disparities, and contributing to the development agenda and other global issues with the SDGs at its core, incluring quality infrastructure, global health, climate change, ocean plastic waste, digital economy, aging and diversified society, etc., and through these efforts, Japan seeks to realize and promote a free and open, inclusive and sustainable, “human-centered future society.”

G20 Summit and 8 Ministerial Meetings are, at the same time, perfect opportunities for people from all over the world to see and experience not only a newly revitalized and transforming Japan but also the wide-ranging appeal of the various regions that will host these consequential discussions.

Fukuoka, for example, hosts G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors Meeting (G20FM&CBG), “G20 Week” or other G20 related events in Fukuoka, G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance (G20 YEA) Summit and Digital/Data 20 (D20), which is the first Cief Digital/Data Officer (CDO)s’ International Conference in the world.G20FM&CBG and FM (Depity PM) himself represents the very G20’s role and history. In November 2008, he was in Washington, D.C. to take part in the very first G20 Leaders’ Summit as the PM of Japan. It was in response to the Global Financial Crisis. To prevent a repeat of the Great Depression, The G20 Leaders gathered with common purpose and joint resolve. Since then, G20 members have agreed and implemented decisive policy actions, including financial regulation and expansionary fiscal policy.

Japan’s presidency will focus on the following three themes.

First, we need to act on the “risks and challenges to the global economy”, including long-term structural issues such as global imbalances and aging.

Second, we will discuss how the G20 could accelerate concrete actions to strengthen growth potential. Here, we cannot do without discussing:

(i) investment in high-quality infrastructure and human capital, as well as
(ii) how to ensure debt sustainability in low-income countries.

And third, we will take up “economic and social structural changes stemming from technological innovation and globalization”. Specifically, we will discuss how to address issues regarding the tax challenges of digitalization, financial market fragmentation and financial innovation.
