Japan PM willing to establish childrens agency ahead of election

Tokyo: Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga on Monday expressed his willingness to establish a new children's agency aimed at spearheading policies related to children,reports Xinhua news agency.

The law makers of the ruling party made the proposal for a children's agency last week in an effort to woo voters ahead of a general election, report said.

Speaking during a meeting of the House of Councillors' Audit Committee on Monday, Yoshihide Suga highlighted the need to eliminate the sectionalism of policies.

"From the broad standpoint of ensuring Japan's future, I want my party to study the establishment of such an agency," Suga said.

Suga has already instructed the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) lawmakers to produce a blueprint for the agency to to coordinate child policies in terms of medical and educational services and those handled by police as part of the country's efforts to address its low birth-rate, according to local media repo

The agency will be set up as part of a special organisation under the Prime Minister and headed by Secretary General Toshihiro Nikai.

In order to appeal people's attention , the government is also trying to include the children's agency in its basic policies to be compiled around June.
