The goal is to open the border gates to international travelers in order to restore the tourism industry in Japan, which has been hit hard by the epidemic.
The members of the Economic and Fiscal Policy Council, which is made up of government and private sector officials, met in this context, according to the Kyodo news agency.
Foreign visitor limitations and travel processes applied to enter the nation should be loosened, according to business sector members on the council.
Tokura Masakazu, the head of Japan’s largest business lobby, “Keidanren,” urged that the country should begin “progressive admittance” of foreign tourists.
Yamagiwa Daişro, Cabinet Member in Charge of Kovid-19 Measures, declared after the meeting that the government and the private sector would work together.
Referring to the “uncertainty in the course” of the epidemic, Yamagiwa noted that the timeline for easing the epidemic restrictions “must be decided appropriately”.
