Japan to host meeting to urge firms to join Ukraine recovery efforts

I wonder if Kishida's urges to Japan Inc to contribute to the Ukrainian recovery will be met with the same decades of noncommittal responses and inaction as the urges to raise Japanese workers wages in line with rising profits .

I had a hallucination that was recomforting. Kishida orders companies to invest 0.1% of their profits into easing the hardships for survival of all inhabitants in the Japanese achipielago. It felt so good!

I am tired of Ukraina Leader and this war! and Japanese government using our money from our taxes for Ukraina! if Japan had a war Ukraina,it would never help, I'm sure of that! is time to let Ukraina fight her on fight alone!

I don't think anyone is forcing Japanese companies to give; rather, it's good for their images to provide things that Ukrainians need in order to rebuild and survive under these harsh conditions.

Doesn't a war have to be over to start the recovery? Just wondering.

Part two proceeding smoothly. 'Part one went well, making US contractors huge profit in supplying the war. For part 2, Japan will be allowed to participate by "investing" in Ukraine's rebuilding, though the US will takes the lions share of all those reconstruction contracts. Ukraine can't pay? No problem! They can just promise their assets and resources and much of their economy to the US, making the country yet another US-owned territory. (Whatever's left of it.) And if the US starts a war with China, Japan can enjoy a similar experience!

That's bad business, tho. That's investment you won't get back.

Why spend money in Ukraine? Japanese money should be spent in Japan to help the Japanese people. Let the Europeans rebuild Ukraine.

Post conflict reconstruction is biiig business. Getting in on the ground floor once things end is great money for a country, especially if they are not participating physically during it.

the US made a lot of its initial wealth from post war recovery aid to Europe. Ain’t no one missing out on that again.

somebody say to guy on photo that there is still ongoing conflict in UA.

as there is conflict-there is not good timing for reconstruction at this moment.

how about to use little common sense?

be a peace negotiator between UA and Russia,make a peace deal,than talk about-reconstruction?

"The Japanese public and private sectors can strongly support the recovery and reconstruction of Ukraine" through the meeting dubbed "the Japan-Ukraine Conference for Promotion of Economic Reconstruction," Hayashi added.

It’s all to be paid for though-nothing is free in this world.

Do the Ukrainians know what awaits them?
