METI Councils

In June 2013, METI organized the 3 council system: the Industrial Structure Council, the Advisory Committee for Natural Resources and Energy, and the Council for Small and Medium Enterprise Policy. By forming subcommittees categorized by each policy field, more intensive and efficient discussion on METI policy challenges is possible.
