Research Director Kobayashi Joins Government Coronavirus Subcommittee

Research Director Keiichiro Kobayashi has been named to join a new government subcommittee responsible for the national coronavirus response, it was announced by Economic Revitalization Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura at a news conference on July 3, 2020.

The subcommittee replaces the advisory panel of healthcare and economic experts—that included Kobayashi—that had met to discuss ways to reopen the economy.

The new subcommittee seeks to incorporate broader views on policies and includes heads of local governments, such as Tottori Governor Shinji Hirai, and media representatives.
