First Wednesday, I have spoken twice and I think it is a really fun and wonderful meeting. A limited number of leaders discuss freely, seriously, and honestly, and get to the heart of the matter. This is very valuable in many Japanese gatherings that tend to fall into formalism. The agenda setting is also excellent. Mr. Kishi, please continue your cheerful and enjoyable efforts with the high pride of “changing the course of Japan.”
