Japan's export curbs merely relieve stress on Abe gov't: Japanese economist Updated: 2019-08-19 04:22:22 KST

An economist in Japan has slammed the Abe government's decision to take South Korea off Japan's list of preferred trading partners, calling it just a way for the administration to relieve economic stress and boost Abe's ratings.
In a column Sunday in the Mainichi Shimbun, Senior Economist at the Japan Research Institute Kosuke Motani said the curbs on Seoul do nothing to serve Japan's national interest and in fact pose a risk to Japanese companies as South Korean firms will develop their own technology.
He also said that the decrease in South Korean tourists could badly hurt the Japanese tourism industry.
