In 2013, Mr. Abe launched – an economic strategy called Abenomics – an economic strategy based on the `three arrows` of quantitative easing, fiscal stimulus through government spending and reform.

The task of structural reform is not easy for a ruling party dominated by different group interests.

However, these achievements have been significantly affected by the US-China trade war in 2019 and the current Covid-19 pandemic.

Regarding domestic affairs, Mr. Abe also sought to amend the constitution to allow the army to fight with allies abroad to protect the country from threats, but this plan is still unfinished.

In foreign affairs, one of Mr. Abe’s greatest achievements is saving the US-led Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) after US President Donald Trump’s administration withdrew from the agreement shortly after

When Mr. Abe took office at the end of 2012, the Japan-China relationship was seriously affected after Tokyo nationalized a number of islands in the Senkaku archipelago (called Diaoyu in China).
