With the rapid progress of globalization, it may be the time for Japan to consider and review Japanese Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act. Having compared with other countries’ immigration policy and practical procedure, I hope participants could learn how other governments treat foreign people from immigration perspective and develop strategy. I hope this forum makes good opportunity to discuss and propose future Japanese immigration policy.
