The introduction of high-added-value medical and nursing care equipment and nursing care robots is an extremely effective means of dealing with the shortage of nursing care staff stemming from population decline and the growing need for nursing care arising from the aging of the population.

Moreover, it will lead to increased labor productivity, thereby contributing to economic growth. If Japan can become a leader in this field, it will be able in the future to export such equipment and robots to other countries that are experiencing the aging of their populations, so it would appear to be a promising field as one form of high-added-value manufacturing industry. It is vital to ensure that policy on medical and nursing care maintains a multifaceted perspective that takes into account both negative and positive aspects, and a good balance must be achieved in its operation.

On the other hand, it also revealed that physicians were more inclined than patients to feel that the explanations provided to them by their patients were inadequate. This perception gap between physicians and patients gives rise to mutual distrust and could cause mistrust in medical care. Consequently, it is vital to understand that there is a possibility of bias in assessments of situations by people with differing standpoints.

I believe that we should consider solutions based on this awareness. How do you view the current status of universities from the perspective of public policy? The view in public policy is that basically, it is better if issues can be resolved by the private sector without the involvement of the government, and best of all if they can be resolved by the market mechanism. Nevertheless, there are likely to be times when the government needs to get involved, because the private sector is unable to handle or resolve the problem.

More than anything else, I believe that it is vital to examine and implement problem-solving from multifaceted perspectives. Looked at in light of market principles, if there is no demand for lawyers, increasing the number of lawyers will just result in lawyers experiencing a fall in income or being unable to find employment. Moreover, the growth in supply could increase the number of low-quality lawyers. If demand for lawyers rises, it is likely that their incomes will be maintained and high-quality personnel will also enter the profession, but is demand for lawyers really likely to grow in Japan?

One has to consider not only the fact that we are entering a period of population decline, but also the very character of the Japanese. As a nation, we have a tendency to seek to avoid causing trouble by trying not to cause a nuisance to others in public places.

Consequently, there are few lawsuits and their number is unlikely to rise that much in the future. The idea of increasing the number of lawyers seems to have been inspired by American society. America is a contract-based society and the breaking of contracts often results in a lawsuit, so it is inevitably a highly litigious society.

When bringing in foreign systems, we need to consider differences in national character, as well as the balance of supply and demand. In Japan today, there are reports of lawyers having difficulty in finding employment and of university law school closures. The root cause of these problems appears to be the failure to consider matters from multifaceted perspectives.

When importing foreign systems and policies from other countries, we should consider matters in a multifaceted manner and contemplate them thoroughly before deciding on the advisability of their introduction.

Japan is entering a period of population decline, so the number of prospective university applicants is also expected to fall. From the perspective of supply and demand, demand the number of entrance examination candidates is going to decrease, so universities might fall below quota unless they reduce supply the number of places available. If the admission quota is not reduced, their only option will be to increase the number of international students from other countries or the number of mature students admitted.

Moreover, if the domestic market shrinks due to population decline, people will be compelled to look for work abroad, so Japanese people will need better foreign language skills. As such, I believe that universities are correct to promote internationalization. However, the problem is the speed of those efforts.

To promote internationalization, the government is calling for an expansion in the proportion of international students and teaching staff with experience of education and research overseas.

It seems that the government regards US universities as a role model for internationalization, but the quality of education and research at American universities is high and graduates of leading universities are virtually guaranteed to find a place of employment where the pay is commensurate with the tuition fees that they have paid.
