Concerning the former Prime Minister’s unexpected passing

July 10, 2022

I feel a deep sadness and a fierce anger toward the barbaric act that took life from the former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. He committed to driving growth momentum in the Japanese economy and succeeded in building our presence in the world with his strong leadership while he was in office. He also dedicated years to accelerating empowering women in the society we live in. I still recall his passion for bringing Japan “Toward A Beautiful Country.” I would like to express my utmost gratitude and respect for his accomplishments together with my deepest condolences.
