Japan's Prime Minister Fumio Kishida gave some remarks today at the New York Stock Exchange. Kishida talked about Japan's investment for the future in green transformation and "building a nation that grows together with the rest of the world."

The prime minister also emphasized the need for women to be at the "core of the Japanese economy" and about finding ways to increase the birth rate of the country.

Japan's strict border restrictions will be loosened next month, the prime minister announced Thursday, allowing tourists to easily enter for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

Though foreign tourists were welcomed back in June after a pause of more than two years, the reopening has been confusing to many seeking to visit.
