Located in the heart of Tokyo's governmental district, it is in an ideal position to benefit from the synergy gained by bringing together people from the policy-making, academic, and private sectors. RIETI's focus is on the most pressing issues of structural reform, and it adopts a medium- to long-term viewpoint in its research undertakings. The institute's mission is to contribute the fruits of its studies to constructive policy discussions and to Japan's policy-making process.
