At the Structural Adjustment Section of the Economic Council we have conducted a new review of Japans long range economic and social prospects up to the year 2010. For this goal, we established a Year 2010 Committee, in the section and four subcommittees on World Economy,Life of the Populace, Industrial Economy, and Social Capital within that committee. The schedule called for the study to begin in October 1990 and the report to be compiled by June 1991. Therefore, we have established the Council for Technology Forecast for 2010 in the Planning Bureau of the Economic Planning Agency, and we have conducted research in the Year 2010 Committee and its various subcommittees by selecting 101 technologies and products from the technologies and products that are expected to have a major impact on industry and the economy from the latter half of the 1990s up to 2010. We have not only made predictions on their practical application but also have analyzed the impact they will have on industry and the economy using new methods not used in the past.
