Fujio Mitarai has served as the CEO of the camera giant Canon for a longtime. The company fortunes were steadily reducing until Fujio took over in the 90’s.

He is admired because of his concerns on retirement regulations and policies in Japan. He acted as the Chairman of Japan’s influential Keidanren Business lobby, pushing the authorities to overhaul the tax system and social security so as to make sure workers get paid after retirement.
