“I feel humbled to be entrusted with such an important role. I believe that ‘resilience’ is an urgent issue for Japan, a disaster-prone country, and that it is an area in which I can take an international leadership. I am an expert member of the Cabinet’s Council for the Realization of New Capitalism, where “resilience” is discussed as one of the key keywords.
The damage caused by the Nankai Trough earthquake is expected to reach a maximum of 220 trillion yen in the future. Gathering knowledge from multiple stakeholders such as local governments, academia, and venture companies is essential to handing down a resilient society to the next generation.
