I arrived in Doha on September 18th as the new Ambassador of Japan to the State of Qatar. I am truly honored and excited to have been posted to Qatar, as Qatar is making dynamic progress and playing a greater role in the international community.
As we all know, Qatar is an indispensable partner for Japan in energy security. Now, however, our relationship is expanding beyond energy. It now includes trade, investment, science, education, sports and culture.
My mission as the Ambassador of Japan is to strengthen our relations further based on what both countries have achieved so far. There are reasons to believe that our future will be even brighter. The Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics in 2020 and the FIFA world Cup in Qatar in 2022 represent an ideal opportunity for us to nurture our relationship and ensure that it continues to flourish into the future.
I dedicate myself to serve the interests of both Japanese citizens in Qatar and the Qatari people and to take our relationship forward. I look forward to talking and working with you all.
