A Social Economic Impact Like No Other...

Economic Impact

According to an estimate by the Metropolis of Tokyo, increase in demand up to FY2030 associated with hosting of the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics will be to the tune of about 14 trillion yen in the city of Tokyo alone. The breakup of this surge in demand is that about 2 trillion yen will be spent as investment and expenditure directly relating with the hosting of the Olympics and the balance demand worth JPY 12 trillion will be generated based on initiatives by the Metropolis Tokyo towards post-event  legacy. Moreover, the economic ripple effect of the Olympics and Paralympics will spread across the country and the gross amount is expected to be in the vicinity 32 trillion yen.

Social Impact

The Paralympics have a huge social impact on society. Paralympic athletes are role models for the younger generation, and become public figures for change and advocacy on relevant issues. The Paralympics also have helped improve mobility and accessibility within Japan. The Games also help with the continuous investment in the Paralympic sport. There are also 17,699 schools in 47 different prefectures that are taking part in educational awareness programmes regarding the Paralympics. The Games also help bring more visibility of disability sport as a tool for social inclusion of disabled people.
