In line with LinkedIn‘s mission to connect the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe would be contributing his insights under the Influencers Program, which is a platform for members to follow thought leaders and get essential professional insights and career advice.
Prime Minister Abe’s first post on LinkedIn was about “Japan’s New Growth Strategy: Bringing Rapid Reform to the Country“, and how Abenomics can lift the country out of deflation. In just two days of its publishing, the article has been seen and read by over 45,000 other members on LinkedIn. Over 2,000 people have also begun to follow his Linkedin profile.
Hari Krishnam, Managing Director of LinkedIn for Asia Pacific and Japan believes that providing first-hand views on the world’s third largest economy can definitely add value to all the current LinkedIn members, especially as ”Japan’s economic success story has generated increasing interest from a global audience.”
