To pay tribute to Prime Minister Abe, Boston Global Forum republishes his speech from the first Global Cybersecurity Day:

(Excerpts of Prime Minister Abe’s speech at Boston Global Forum Conference, December 12, 2015.)

“Ensuring security in cyberspace – cybersecurity – is the indispensable foundation for advancing our utilization of IT and realizing our Growth Strategy.”

“Japan will continue to cooperate closely with the US and other partners in the international community reliably safeguarding our nation’s important information and property while playing a leading role in achieving the peace and stability of the international community.”

“It is greatly reassuring to me that the members of the Boston Global Forum are promoting cybersecurity-related awareness raising activities and fostering discussions in various countries around the world.”
