Japan Eyes Setting Up Child Agency in FY 2023

Japan Eyes Setting Up Child Agency in FY 2023

   Tokyo, Nov. 23 (Jiji Press)--The Japanese government is making arrangements to set up an agency tasked with formulating and implementing policy measures for children in fiscal 2023, informed sources said.
   By the end of this year, the government plans to draw up a basic policy on the new agency, which will assume missions to provide seamless support for children regardless of age and get rid of sectionalism within the government, according to the sources.
   It will be closely watched what authority the agency will be granted in order to come up with workable policy measures.
   The government started considering the creation of a child agency at the initiative of former Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.
   Prime Minister Fumio Kishida also regards the envisaged agency as a centerpiece of his domestic policy measures. "We have discussed the importance of a child agency. I will make efforts to launch it," Kishida told reporters on Saturday.
