He stated that in order to take the initiative in international rule-making, it is important not only to provide solutions to social issues, but also to take initiatives in the process of raising the issues and solving them. He also stated that Japanese companies are required to think strategically, in addition to maintaining their technical capabilities, and that it is essential to gain understanding and sympathy through effective global public relations.
