In a speech during a special session of Parliament, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida called revitalising the economy his “top priority”. He outlined plans to focus on cushioning the impact of rising electricity bills, increasing inbound tourism, and capitalising on the weak yen. The yen has declined as much as 21% this year. Mr Kishida also addressed the thorny issue of his party’s links with the Unification Church. The special Diet session took place as approval ratings for Mr Kishida’s cabinet fell to the lowest since he took office.
