Biden accuses Japan, China, and Russia of exhibiting xenophobic behavior

President Joe Biden expressed concerns about Japan’s economic struggles due to xenophobia, comparing it to China and Russia’s situations. Despite Japan being a U.S. ally, Biden’s comments may strain relations, as Japan is facing demographic issues and restrictive immigration laws hindering foreign worker growth. To combat economic challenges, Japan approved legislation to increase foreign skilled worker caps. However, Japan’s migrant integration policies are behind other developed countries, with public opinion on accepting more foreign workers gradually changing. Japan is also grappling with a weak yen and labor shortages, further impacting economic growth and competitiveness on the global stage.
