    As the second-tallest Japanese prime minister in the modern era, Prime Minister
    Shinzo Abe stood tall among other world leaders in the “family photo” at the recent 2013 G8
    Summit, held at Lough Erne in Northern Ireland. The image seemed somehow symbolic of
    the fact that Japan has enjoyed an increased prominence in the global economy this year, as
    the effects of the new LDP administration’s bold economic stimulus programme have started
    to take hold. The summit trip was part of a tour of European capitals which gave Mr. Abe the
    chance to make the case for Abenomics in person, and to seek to boost Japan’s trade and
    investment relations with the EU in a number of areas. This discussion paper looks at how
    Abenomics is raising Japan’s profile in Europe, and considers the economic goals of this trip
    – in particular, the goal of doubling Japan-bound FDI – and the likely effects of the “three
    arrows” in achieving these goals.
