Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Wednesday unveiled a keenly-anticipated long-term growth plan to get the world's third largest economy on track.

The wide-ranging plan includes pledging to raise incomes by 3 percent annually over the next decade and set up special economic zones to attract foreign investment.

Abe said the government would also fully liberalize the retail electricity market and aim to boost power related investment to 30 trillion yen ($300 billion) over the next 10 years.

Structural reforms are the third arrow of Abe's "three arrow" strategy and follow the two others: monetary and fiscal stimulus.

Japan watchers say long-term reforms are the most important, but does Abe's plan go far enough to get the Japanese economy out of a rut? Vote and tell us what you think.
