Mr. Hirai, Minister of Digital Affairs, “I want to create a new ministry by ingesting human resources from the private sector,” September 17, 2:53 a.m.

At a press conference after the first cabinet meeting, Mr. Hirai, the minister in charge of digital reform, said of the establishment of the Digital Agency, “It will be a major mission. I think there are many bills related to the regular Diet session next year, but since we have to do things like revise the IT Basic Law and establish a digital agency at once, time is tight, but I want to face it with a sense of speed. We have no intention of making something similar to existing government offices, and we want to create a new ministry by ingesting a lot of new human resources from the private sector.”
