Toward the realization of a society that incorporates technological innovation The outline of the basic policy plan is finalized November 18, 17:30
Regarding science and technology and innovation, the government has put together a draft basic plan that shows the direction of policies from next year, and embodies the social image and values that should be aimed at in order to realize a society that incorporates rapidly advancing technological innovation. We are planning to come up with a policy to do so.
A basic plan that shows the direction of science and technology policy is set every five years, but from next year it will also include the ideal way of innovation that is progressing rapidly, and the outline of the plan will be held at the government meeting held on the 18th. The idea was shown.
In this, in order to realize a society that incorporates rapidly advancing technological innovation called "Society 5.0," we will come up with policies that embody the social image and values that we should aim for.
On top of that, as the effects of the new coronavirus continue, we will steadily implement digitization with a clear lag, and aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero as a whole by 2050, the next generation. The company plans to promote innovative innovations such as the development of type solar cells and carbon recycling that recovers carbon dioxide and uses it as fuel.
Based on this outline, the government will solicit opinions from the public and make a cabinet decision on a new basic plan within this fiscal year.
