Public Policy Planning & Consulting Co. is a consulting company specializing in the field of public policy.

The company provides services to political party, individual politician, local political leader, and private company and organization.
The company has made variety of accomplishments particularly in the fields of economic policy, fiscal policy, monetary policy, social security, regulatory reform, administrative reform, educational reform, etc.

In Japan, the powerful government bureaucracy has dominated the function of planning public policy and almost nobody has ever played a role to propose alternatives.  The company aims to be a competitor against the bureaucracy in Japan.

Public Policy Planning & Consulting

In order to accomplish the democracy in a true sense, we believe it requires an existence of the competing actors against the kasumigaseki, and the ones that elaborate concrete policy plans and bills, rather than simply express mere wishes or demands. We believe that the policy consulting industry should show the policy alternatives to the public and the Diet members by presenting “counterproposals” to the government.
P.P.P.C. was thus founded to pioneer such policy consulting industry.
