TOKYO -- Japan hopes to remake itself as a nation full of foreign executives that overseas businesses are eager to pour money into. 

To that end, the government aims to roughly double the number of senior foreign executives in the country by 2030. The number of foreigners working in Japan under a business manager visa will be raised to about 200,000 from around 95,000 in 2019.
