PERC undertook original research demonstrating the economic value of reforming the consumer credit reporting system in Japan. PERC found that movement from the current “negative-only” and fragmented system to a full-file and comprehensive system would result in an average annual increase to Japanese GDP of 0.3%. PERC presented these findings at an event hosted by the U.S. Embassy in Japan.

In addition to the original research, PERC efforts in Japan included:

  • Advocacy with the Diet;
  • Upper House fundraising events;
  • Outreach to the Bank of Japan, MITI, and other agencies; and,
  • Industry outreach.
