Chip Star, hahaha, you never been to Chinese filthy wet markets, have you ?
Well, the majority of wet market in other countries doesn't have or nurture any strain of corona-virus, didn't they?

A necessary move, as sanctions against Russia prove that the West wants to harm the Russian people and they need to stand united to defend themselves.

That's 50% of the visitors to Japan.
That's gonna hurt.
There will definitely be a big decline in foreign tourist arrival in Japan for year 2020. Even the Olympics couldn't make it up for it, i reckon (if it is even allowed to go ahead!)
I am fed up hearing about what Japan did 50 or 60 years ago, we cannot change the past only learn from it and move on. Every country has their skeletons, every country and so look in your backyard to find your own and reflect. There is no Garden of Eden anywhere in this world, and so, in this time of crisis everyone needs to pull together and respect the decisions of one another countries and pray.
The Korean government especially, is immature. They'll never move on (there is a political motive behind this, domestically speaking there, i suspect).
We have SB, still active as armchair all-Japan critic, & now we have SJ xD
Amusing to say the least.

They are consider lucky, despite struggling, still be able to live in single & private rented house / apato.
Many young working adult (if not the majority) in the other developing Asian countries are living in a shared house or even room!

Thailand is a stronghold for Japanese Automakers, & also a major base of trans-factories for their market in Southeast Asia.
Indeed, GM's global sales is in decline for the past 5 years. Sensible decisions when your volume go down by 25% for that period.

I can say that for sure. That the IMF is much more flexible with Japan compared to other first world countries.
Japan is an economic powerhouse, one of the leading, technologically advanced country in Asia Pacific, & 'bigger" country than Spain, all aspects considered.
Of course Japan can "flex" its muscle much more than what Spain is capable of.

Posted in: Japan is an anomaly among developed economies. The era of coal is ending, but for Japan, it’s proving very difficult to give up an energy source that it has relied on for so long. See in context
I can name at least 5 other developed countries/economies that fare far worse than Japan in this aspect

Under Brexit Britain will be smaller, whiter, older, less powerful internationally, less prosperous, less relevant, and provide fewer social services. On the other hand, they still have that silly, multi-billion dollar reality show known as "The House of Windsor."
Just roughly 100 years ago, the British Empire was still the largest of its kind before the 21st CE, actively involved in advancing science & technology (while at the same time plundering the resources of its colonies).
But now look at them. No longer a giant in technology or high tech producing country. Politically a divided nation, and seemingly at lost in global political stage.
But it is only natural. Nothing will stay at the top forever. It is cyclical.

Ghosn destroyed the quality of cars produced by Nissan. Constantly cutting cost over QUALITY!
Wow, the most misleading & fake comment that i've heard in JT for a while.
Ghosn single-handedly rejuvenated Nissan from the brink of bankruptcy more than 20 years ago, & contributed very much to the Japan's Big Three (Toyota, Honda & Nissan) competitiveness, reliability & image as automotive producing country at world stage.
Countless book & study have been made highlighting Ghosn's drive to eliminate wastage & inefficiencies at Nissan prior to that.
Really unjustified prejudice has clouded, or even blinded the mind of some people here in Japan.

The moral values must have changed a lot in today's world. I am astonished to read that most of the commentators are siding with a shrewd crook and putting the blame on either Nissan or Japanese judicial system. What a world?
Either you didn't read & understand the whole story, or you are just as brainwashed as some of the "sheep".
Name me one Western, developed country that has similar pre-trial detention (extended up to weeks, can be without defense lawyer & very little family contact) method as Japan? Name me just one.
Even "some" developing/developed countries in Asia are far better than Japan in this.

why can't some people admit that ghosn isn't exactly totally innocent here?
No, many people do realize that Ghosn is not totally in the right
The report found Saikawa received an excess of around 96.50 million yen ($877,000) before tax via stock appreciation rights, and six other executives were overpaid under the scheme by a total of 57.72 million yen.
And we'll keep banging on for the hypocrisy on Saikawa & other execs possible wrongdoings too. Will the japanese prosecutor take action?
You should know by now, the bigger spotlight is on the japan justice system. Change or ready for criticism.

"Ten to 15 years from now, a next-generation C919, or other models developed by COMAC, may become real competitors on the global scene."
Ten to 15 years is 2030-2035. Made in China 2025 is still a pipe dream.

Trump's willingness to do the same.
The USA sold a lot of weapons & military equipment to the Saud-led regime, while Japan up until today has a very restrictive exportation of such equipment down to the level of high tech component to produce them.
The hypocrisy level is very high indeed for Uncle Sam.

Ghosn has been blaming everyone but himself.
The disgraceful Nissan people in power & Japanese prosecutor have been blaming Ghosn all the way, with disgusting extended detention, not seen anywhere else in the world for such alleged crime. Shame on you all!
