How Shinzo Abe's positive legacy could shape Japan's future

The Impact of Shinzo Abe's Assassination on Japan's Future | GZERO Media

How will the shocking murder of former PM Shinzo Abe affect Japan moving forward?

In past national tragedies, especially the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, longtime Abe adviser and close friend Tomohiko Taniguchi says that the "outpouring of sympathies and empathies from abroad helped a lot."


This time, he tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World, everyone has urged Japan to carry on — and that's what the nation is doing right now.

In the future, Taniguchi hopes that the death of Japan's "cheerleader-in-chief" will help the country change for the better.
