Tokyo, May 17 (Saba) - Japanese Cabinet has approved revisions to various key policies including energy, which has placed significance on nuclear power. In a meeting on Tuesday, the Cabinet drew up guidelines for various key policies in view of the changes that have emerged following the March 11 earthquake and nuclear disaster, according to Qatar News Agency (QNA).
Under the plan, the new growth strategy panel is to resume meetings by the end of May and present a strategy for Japan's revival by the end of the year. The meetings had been suspended since the disaster, NHK World Radio Japan reported.
The state energy policy, which has placed nuclear power as a key pillar, is to be fundamentally reviewed.
The government will also reconsider plans promoting exports of infrastructure such as nuclear power, high-speed trains and tap and sewage water facilities.
Discussions on ways to promote investment in Japan are to be held with an aim to overcome adverse sales of Japanese products in other countries due to unfounded fears of radiation.
However, the Cabinet has put off a decision on whether Japan should join negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP. It agreed to comprehensively discuss the idea, after earlier planning to reach a decision by June.
The government will begin discussing specific measures and compile an overall view of the policies by July.(
