Two years after the Tohoku earthquake and amidst Prime Minister Abe’s new economic policies, known as "Abenomics," interest is once again increasing in Japan. Now is the time for Japan to rethink what type of country it should be building for the future. In this program, Naoki Inose, Governor of Tokyo, discusses Japan’s future, his efforts to increase business and economic development, and what Tokyo can offer in its bid for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games. He also speaks about the type of leadership Tokyo, which he calls the "heart of Japan," should display in the effort to support and change Japan.

The Honorable Naoki Inose, Governor of Tokyo
