A happy new year to you. Today we will have new year's special program to discuss this year's prospects for the Japanese economy by having Japan's foremost business leader and economist, Mr. Keikichi Honda, as today's interviewee.
Actually, Mr. Honda and I participated in a recent conference in Montreal, Canada, where he and I discussed the present and future prospects for the Japanese economy. And you can see a summary and video of Mr. Honda's presentation as well as my comment on the GLOCOM Platform.
We now have a telephone interview with Mr. Keikichi Honda. Mr. Honda is chairman of the board of directors of NCR Japan, and vice president of NCR in the U.S. Before assuming these positions early in 2003 he was Chairman of Sun Microsystems Japan. But more of all, he was best known as the economic advisor to the President of the Bank of Tokyo, and the bank's chief economist.
In the interview, Mr. Honda expressed his view as seen below:

On the other hand, as the interviewer I tried to present an alternative view as seen below:

As you have just heard in the interview, Mr. Honda and I somewhat differ in our views on this year's prospects for the Japanese economy. What do you think?
The website for this program is now open (http://www.radionikkei.jp/joho), where you can listen to the previously broadcast programs on the web. My next program will be on the first Sunday in February. I will see you then.
