Is this not helping China

I think China will not benefit.

but during the trade war with USA, China must have been struggle and ended up joining in RCEP. Lots of product will have lower tariffs then China will face trade loss.

Japan have to show a leader ship and it’ll the best way for democratic counties to transfer supply chain to APAC.

During a trade war China has be worried and has as sense of crisis. That would’ve made the counties to make an agreement with the RCEP.

China could lead the trade loss as tariff of various products from many countries get lower and anoint if import increasing.

Posted in: Japan to make plastic recycling mandatory for large corporate users See in context

Amid the pandemic outbreak, there’re many plastic trays used for “bento” increasing. Also Pet bottle has been very useful material for using as drinking and cloths. Other plastic materials are also easy to use for life

The micro plastics pollution has one of the top priority issues for improvement in the world.

Japan is not advanced country in the recycling or ecology I think.

So it’s great to make the recycling process mandatory to large cooperate for the first step.

It is so beautiful.I could see it even in Tokyo

The nice scenery is the result of the high pressure system has been dominating across Japan and dry and cold air flowing down.

The period of La Niña has started and likely continue as we go into this winter.

If so, there will be a trend that high pressure systems dominate and cold air coming from Siberia often more than normal.

I hope her daughter “Misaki” is now somewhere with someone.

He said the COVID-19 outbreak had demonstrated the need for the government to use digital technology more efficiently,

Suga promised to push ahead with administrative reforms "to shatter bureaucratic sectionalism, vested interests and bad precedents" that are hindering the government.

I really want to see how they work.

His policies will be a right direction
