TOKYO -- Japan wants companies involved in strategic industries such as semiconductors and nuclear power to appoint an executive responsible for economic security issues, Nikkei has learned.

Government officials are preparing to create a forum as early as this year for talks on how to safeguard crucial technology and prevent excessive reliance on Chinese manufacturing, among other topics. The Japan Business Federation, or Keidanren, is among the organizations that will be asked to join the forum.
