  At this time our nation is facing a variety of problems, such as environmental and resource problems, food supply problems, health care problems and education problems. In becoming the second largest economy in the world Japan has developed a society of abundance and stability, but has also become one of the first in the world to confront these problems. These are not just national issues for Japan; these are concerns that are shared throughout the world, and will soon be confronting our Asian neighbors, such as India and China as these economies advance. No country has resolved these issues, but in order for mankind to maintain the current social systems it is crucial to find solutions for these problems.

Our nation has experience with pollution problems. Through a combination of higher-awareness and the application of superior technological capabilities we have become a world leader in achieving notable success resolving pollution problems. Japanese know-how and technological ability is highly-regarded throughout the world, it should be possible to take advantage of these skills to solve our national problems. There is a need to make the fullest possible use of this knowledge and technical ability, and to combine it with the best know-how and technology from throughout the world so that Japan can provide a leadership role in bringing [State-of-the-art Models] of solutions to these important problems. At the same time we are working to solve the future problems of the world, this will be a chance for Japan to lead the world and fulfill our responsibility as an advanced nation.
