JANCPEC Social Resilience Research Project 2011
The 19th PECC General Meeting held in Tokyo in October 2010 approved the continuation of JANCPEC's Social Resilience Research Project (SR Project) into 2011. In SR Project 2011, research members will examine the current status and prospects of the economies not addressed in last year's research and pursue horizontal research that gives due consideration to the mutual interactions between areas of study. Similar to last year, the Project will have a four-fold focus: the pension systems, medicare systems, unemployment insurance systems, and macro analysis. The research members are listed below.

Research report for 2010 JANCPEC Social Resilience Research Project completed!
The Social Resilience Research Project being undertaken by the Japan National Committee for Pacific Economic Cooperation (JANCPEC) was officially approved as a PECC International Project at the PECC General Meeting held in Singapore from October 9-10, 2009. The Social Resilience Research Project ("SR Project") entails social policy research to support sustained growth and comprises four teams studying pensions, medicare, unemployment insurance and macro analysis in Asia.

The PECC International Workshop on the Social Resilience Project took place at the International House of Japan in Tokyo from March 4-5, 2010, and featured interim reports of research findings. The leaders of the four research teams subsequently reported on their research results at the 19th PECC General Meeting held on October 21, 2010. Published copies of the research report for this year's SR Project were distributed to participants during the 19th PECC General Meeting.

This report contains an executive summary as well as papers authored by members of the four research teams (pensions, medicare, unemployment insurance, and macro analysis). Contained in the executive summary are policy recommendations derived from the research findings that were also presented to the APEC Ministerial Meeting. The release of this report marks an end to this year's activities, but the PECC Standing Committee has given its approval for the SR Project to be continued next year and beyond in view of the importance of the topics it covers.

JANCPEC Social Resilience Project (SR Project) 2010 International Workshop

    PECC International Workshop on Social Resilience

The Kick-Off!! "JANCPEC Social Resilience Research Project"
The PECC officially approved the "JANCPEC Social Resilience Research Project" as a PECC International Project at the Singapore conference (October 9-11, 2009) entitled "Economic Crisis and Recovery: Enhancing Resilience, Structural Reform, and Freer Trade in the Asia-Pacific Region"(http://www.pecc.org/). The Social Resilience Research Project (SR Project) is the first ambitious attempt by the APEC/PECC family to discuss social policy in the Asia-Pacific region in depth. APEC and PECC have long argued for the liberalization of investment and trade. Looking beyond the economic crisis, the time has come for individual Asian countries to address domestic social policies in earnest and to discuss the sense of security of those persons who underpin liberalization and brisk domestic demand as well as social safety nets for them in connection with a major paradigm shift toward the construction of a resilient model for sustained economic growth. Given this scope, the SR Project has a four-fold focus: the pension systems, medicare systems, unemployment insurance systems in the Asia-Pacific region, and a macro analysis. Details of the SR Project are available in this file.

What is PECC?

The Japan Institute of International Affairs serves as the secretariat of the Japan National Committee for the Pacific Economic Cooperation (JANCPEC). Ambassador Kenichiro Sasae is the JANCPEC chair.

The Pacific Economic Cooperation Council is an independent and unofficial regional mechanism to advance economic cooperation and market-driven integration. PECC is a unique partnership of business, government and intellectual leaders engaged in their private capacities to promote economic growth, social progress, scientific and technological development, and environmental conservation. Founded in 1980 at the initiative of Masayoshi Ohira and Malcom Fraser, then prime ministers of Japan and Australia, PECC organizes task forces, project groups and forums. PECC has twenty-four full Member Committees and one Associate Member from economies in the Pacific region. The Japan National Committee consists of over one hundred representatives of business, government and the academy.
