Hello, everyone. A new fiscal and academic year has just begun in Japan, and today we have a special guest in this studio to discuss recent developments in China. As you know, China has been increasing its presence not only in the Asian region but also in the global community, and we will ask what kind of strategies and policies China is adopting, and how Japan should act in Asia as well as globally by taking into consideration China's increasing presence and influence economically, politically and otherwise. So, let us think of this important issue together.
Now I am pleased to introduce Mr. Tomohiko Taniguchi, who is an Editor at Large at Nikkei BP, Nikkei Business Publications. Mr. Taniguchi is very well known not only in Japan but also in the US and Europe as a leading journalist as well as an opinion leader explaining and representing Japan's views and positions in the outside world. And today I will ask him to talk about his recent visit to China and actually stay in Shanghai for a few months.
(Interview with Mr. Taniguchi, conducted in Japanese)
Today we have no time left for the trend research corner, but in relation to Japanese culture, I would like to call your attention to Stanford Japan Center researcher Kenichi Imai's article entitled "Leading the World with Unique Culture – New Kyoto Model," where Mr.. Imai suggests the nurturing of an "economic cultural city" through people's creative activities based on traditional culture, and a model can be found in Kyoto – the ancient capital of Japan.
