Hi Blog. I’m currently at work at JIPI on my presentation for next Monday evening on why Japan needs immigration, and what Japan must do to bring it about.
I’ve made a list of the Merits and Demerits of Immigration, and will deal with each one in turn in my powerpoint. Plus I will talk about the issue in terms of a “give and take”, as in what the GOJ must give to Immigrants, and what Immigrants must be willing to give back to Japanese society in return.
I have plenty of ideas, of course. But let me ask Debito.org Readers for feedback on the above issues:
- What are the merits of immigration?
- What are the demerits of immigration?
- What should the GOJ give to make Japan more attractive for immigrants?
- What should immigrants do to make themselves part of Japan?
It’s a very open question I’m asking, of course. I just don’t want to think about this all alone and miss something important that we all should have said. Fire away. Arudou Debito in Tokyo
