Kan Cabinet’s first Cabinet meeting “Cabinet working for the people” Decided on the basic policy September 17 at 1:09 a.m.
The first Cabinet meeting since the inauguration of the Kan Cabinet was held on the evening of the 16th, and after inheriting the Abe administration’s efforts and going further ahead, the government decided on a basic policy to create a “Cabinet that works for the people” that will do its best to reform regulations.
The Kan Cabinet’s basic policy states that, with the rise of challenges such as the new Coronavirus, political vacuums will not be allowed, and the Abe administration’s efforts will be inherited and further advanced in order to regain a safe life for the people as soon as possible.
On top of that, we are going to create a “Cabinet that works for the people” that overcomes the vertical and precedentism of the administration and makes full efforts to reform regulations without being bound by vested interests.
With regard to the response to the new coronavirus, with the aim of balancing infection control with socio-economic activities, we aim to secure vaccines for all citizens by the first half of next year, support damage such as tourism and eating and drinking on the premise that we will take measures against infection, and make intensive reforms and make necessary investments to achieve strong economic growth.
In addition to announcing the realization of insurance for infertility treatment as a measure against the declining birthrate, the government will develop diplomatic and security policies based on the functioning Japan-U.S. alliance, and will make every effort to resolve the abduction issue with the aim of “total financial results of postwar diplomacy.”
